Despite the impending returns of some of Vancouver's depth forwards from injury and the roster crunch that's sure to ensue, the Vancouver Canucks have opted not to release Bo Horvat to join Team Canada for the upcoming World Junior Championships later this month.

For some of you, getting your report card was one of the most exciting times of the year. If your grades were good, maybe your parents would give you a little extra allowance to spend, or let you get that video game you wanted. For others, report card time was a tangled mess of gut-wrenching nervousness and oh my god Mr. Smith gave me a C- in English MY PARENTS ARE GOING TO KILL ME.
Either way, welcome to the Canucks Army Weekly Player Grades, where we'll take all that repressed childhood anxiety, bottle it back up, and apply it to your (presumably) favourite hockey team instead.

Leading up to today's game, there were a number of exciting storylines to pay attention to: the Canucks winning-est coach Alain Vignault was returning to Vancouver; the Canucks were not able to beat the Rangers in two matchups last year; they've just returned home after a 7 game road trip seeing them lose the last 3 games; Derek Dorsett having his first child; new baby pictures of Prince George; and Rhys actually trusting me to watch this game and to write about it (there was no other viable option).
Of course, this game did not go nearly as well as planned as the Canucks lost 5-1 after a staggering number of defensive lapses and odd-man rushes.
