With the Vancouver Canucks tail-spinning towards the bottom of the NHL's standings (last night notwithstanding) Canucks Army has learned from a well-placed source that the organization has, after months of decisions to the contrary, decided to send forwards Jake Virtanen and Jared McCann to their respective Canadian Hockey League teams to join them for the playoffs.
