The Comets went on a road trip last weekend. Road trips can be a ton of fun, a great bonding experience full of joy, comradery, and memories that can last a life time. They can also be to Newfoundland. The Comets went to Newfoundland.

They did still manage to find joy however, winning both games on the rock, leaving them on a nifty four game winning streak. They even got a little board in the final game and decided to make things interested, leading to a gorgeous comeback goal and a Canucks prospect entering the AHL record books.

Today's edition of What Would you Do Wednesday, is brought to you by the day Thursday.

The Canucks are set to play Saturday night's contest against the Toronto Maple Leafs in their classic Flying Skate logo and jersey combo. For many this jersey is a great reminder of the Canucks when they were entering prominence after years of embarrassment. It conjures memories of Pavel Bure and Trevor Linden, to name a few. For some, this jersey is sacred.

Has me wondering, which jersey and logo combo was your favourite? If you could bring any of the old ones back as a third, which would be your logo of choice?

Hey, guys! It's Cat Silverman with the post-game, live from Glendale's press box.

(Also, the arena Wi-Fi is killing me tonight, so I'm changing things up).

Canucks Recall Yannick Weber and Alex Friesen

In the wake of the long term injuries to Alex Edler and Brandon Sutter (again), the Canucks announced today that they have called up Yannick Weber and centre Alex Friesen.

We all know Weber's story already. He's had a largely disappointing season with the Canucks so far, and as a result, he was waived and announced to Utica when the team gained full health. Alex Friesen, on the other hand, is new blood. This is Friesen's first call up to the Canucks and is in concert with this season's trend of giving every Comets player who is technically a prospect a look-see in the NHL.

The Canucks should consider claiming Christian Ehrhoff

The Los Angeles Kings turned a few heads across the hockey world today, placing German defenceman Christian Ehrhoff on waivers. While it's possible that he clears and bolsters an already competitive Ontario Reign in the AHL, the odds are much more in favour of a team picking up his $1.5 million salary. So here's my thought; why not make that team the Vancouver Canucks?
