With the Canucks surviving the California trip and flirting with first place in the NHL (I've heard rumors first place is seeing other people), what better time than now to have another fireside chat where we can all gather around and share stories of players we hate, players we like, and Lucas Sbisa.
Also, it got really cold, really fast in Vancouver, so a fireplace is sorely needed. Read more past the jump!

The Phoenix Coyotes came in to tonight's tilt against the Canucks having lost three games in a row, sitting dead last in the Western Conference, tired from playing last night, sporting some of the worst underlying metrics in the entire NHL, and playing their backup goalie who hadn't been able to give them a save all season.
So of course Martin Hanzal found a way to destroy the Canucks defense, and of course Devan Dubnyk found a way to shut them out too, en route to a 5-0 Arizona Coyotes win. Read past the jump for a recap.

Vancouver is back in action tonight, playing an Arizona Coyotes team that has struggled on the year, and lost 3 games in a row, including one last night. Radim Vrbata will return to the Canucks lineup to take on his former teammates, and the Canucks will be looking to re-take the lead in the overall NHL standings.

The Arizona Coyotes are in town to face the Vancouver Canucks tonight, and in order to make room permanent for one of their top young players in Brandon Gormley, they have placed defenseman David Schlemko on waivers.
Waivers: DAVID SCHLEMKO ARI— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) November 14, 2014
We've been fans of acquiring Schlemko for a while now, and the fact that he's available for literally nothing but cap dollars is pretty enticing. Read past the jump for three reasons why the Canucks should make a waiver claim for David Schlemko.
