To start off the year we decided to have another round of the always loveable NationDrafts!  Unfortunately, the pool ended without the fanfare that I feel that it deserved.  Things ended without our winners getting the day in the sun that they're pale blotchy skin so desperately deserves.  With that, I present the winners of the NationDrafts pool.

In one of the most entertaining games the Canucks have played this season, Vancouver put forth a spirited, physical effort against Winnipeg, and on the backs of Ronalds Kenins' clutch goal and a Luca Sbisa end-to-end overtime rush, came from behind to beat the visiting Jets 3-2 in overtime.

Wait, no. That doesn't make any sense. Let's try that again.

There's a lot of trade chatter surrounding the Vancouver Canucks these days, and why not. We've seen general manager Jim Benning operate, and we know he's a man of action.

Whether or not that action improves the team or not, well that's still up for debate. The days of stay still Gill are gone though, and you can expect the Canucks to be active in the weeks leading up to the March 2 NHL trade deadline.

Two things in particular seem likely to be addressed, including the trade of a depth goaltender, and the acquisition of reinforcements up front. On Tuesday, ESPN and TSN's Pierre LeBrun addressed both issues, and we'll get into it on the other side of the jump.

After dropping a controversial 4-2 decision to the Minnesota Wild on Super Bowl Sunday, the Canucks are back in action tonight to play host to the road-weary and slumping Winnipeg Jets, who are playing for the second time in two nights. Unlike previous years, Winnipeg looks like one of the strongest teams in the West, although they're also locked in the battle for one of the final two Wild Card spots with Vancouver as well.

Seeing as the Jets have a penchant for aggressive play and need the two points as much as Vancouver does, it should be an intense game. Read past the jump for a preview.
