The game is the first chance to evaluate the final roster for Canada and for Finnish fans to prepare for a couple cuts that need to be made before the tournament begins.

Canucks GM Mike Gillis and Assistant GM Laurence Gilman were on the TEAM1040 on Wednesday afternoon with Don Taylor. The interview was wide-ranging and about as candid as could be expected from the two. They covered essentially all of the major issues surrounding the team right now, from the lockout, to Ryan Kesler’s injury status, to Alex Edler’s development, and more.

David Booth's use of Twitter has repeatedly drawn the ire of Canucks fans, mostly because of his habit of posting boastful photos (and videos) documenting his legal hunting exploits. But criticism of Booth's tweets and his worldview reached something of a crescendo this past weekend, when Booth took some time to comment on the tragic school shooting in Sandy Hook Connecticut. As debates about gun-control and ultimately inaccurate reporting from the crime scene filled up our "timelines" on Friday and Saturday, David Booth offered an alternative take on the tragic events and appeared to be advocating for school prayer:
Can't get over yesterday. Still thinking about CT. Wondering... with all the thoughts & PRAYERS why not bring Christ back into the schools?— David Booth (@D_Booth7) December 15, 2012

Back on October 19th, the Chicago Wolves improved to 4-0 on the season thanks in large part to a virtuoso performance by Zack Kassian in front of a building filled with Canucks fans, and brass. It would be an understatement to say that the Wolves have seen their share of ups and downs since then. Nonetheless, they continued their winning ways, stretching their winning streak to 4 games following a 1-0 victory against the Abbotsford Heat. Enjoy one of their patented "ups" while it lasts, folks.
