Few topics garner as much attention in this market like the incoming decision the Canucks face with right-winger Jannik Hansen.
Will Vancouver trade him? If they choose not to, will they be forced to expose him in the expansion draft? Alternatively, could they trade a prospect/pick to Las Vegas to ensure they don't select Hansen in the expansion draft?
The situation calls for an in-depth looking at the situation from every angle to help for a conclusion about how the Canucks can best navigate this quandary ahead of the March 1st trade deadline.

The road less traveled would be a fitting poem to base this Canucks season on; winning on the road has not come easy, let alone at all. Coming into tonight's game against the juggernaut Blue Jackets, Vancouver has a road record of 6-16-3 and the way they seem to be finishing games, the Canucks may not get to 10 road wins unless they can somehow manage to rework, well, everything.
Last game, John Tortorella scored his 500th win as a coach and the Jackets were on a bit of a streak if I remember correctly. This game is huge for the Canucks and once again, if the playoffs are still on the table then we're going to have to see some big changes.

It's time another edition of the Canucks Army podcast and this week Jeremy Davis joins Satiar Shah and J.D. Burke to break down the 2017 NHL Entry Draft and some of the overrated or underrated prospects to watch out for.

Our very own managing editor, the esteemed Joesph Dylan Burke, made an appearance on the Canucks Lunch segment on TSN 1040 today, talking Philip Larsen and a small manner of other topics with Matt Sekeres and Blake Price. JD was called upon to defend the article he posted yesterday, titled "Philip Larsen is Adequate", a take that would seem so benign but has instead become a hot topic - or at the very least, a distraction from the Canucks' latest losing streak.

On Monday, nominations for the Hobey Baker award - essentially the NCAA MVP - were unveiled yesterday. To no one's surprise, Brock Boeser was onthe lengthy list, despite an injury hampered season. To some surprise, Will Lockwood was also included. To great surprise, Adam Gaudette was left off the list of nominations entirely.
So what's the deal with that?
