The Blue Jackets came in to Vancouver having been severely outplayed last night against the Edmonton Oilers, so tonight's game should have been a schedule loss. But, as the Canucks were reminded tonight, there's a reason why they play the games. Vancouver came out flying but stumbled thereafter, as the Jackets put six goals in the back of Vancouver's net en route to a disappointing 6-2 final.

Lets just get this out of the way: this might be a trap game. The 'Bus is coming off a win last night in Edmonton where the shootout decided it all, so they ended late and then had to travel to Vancouver. They're pooped! As for the Canucks, they've won two straight against, well, the Leafs and Flyers. They still count and so help me if they lose this one. I mean, IT'S COLUMBUS!!! They are the sixth worst team in the league.
Aside from a setback (Editor's note: a setback has happened since this writing. How fortuitous!), Zack Kassian should be in the lineup and then we all play "Who comes out of the lineup that isn't Ronny Kenins?" Maybe Linden Vey will get injured or something, because Kenins seems to just luck out when someone comes back.

The Vancouver Canucks and the agent for Ryan Miller gently disputed some of the details of a report that surfaced on Wednesday from TSN's Farhan Lalji, which suggested that the Canucks's starter was not going to return to action within his original four-to-six week recovery timeline, that he was several weeks away from even skating, and that the goaltender wouldn't return before the NHL playoffs.
It would appear that while Miller has taken part in some on-ice workouts, he's yet to skate with equipment, according to Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins. Also Miller's agent Mike Liut contended in a conversation with News 1130 Sports that Miller isn't behind schedule, he's on schedule, and a four week recovery timeline was always an optimistic fallacy.

The talented 21-year-old defender, a pending restricted free agent, was reassigned once again to the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League on Thursday. It's the fifth time this season that he's been reassigned, and the second time this month.
