We are back this week for your weekly Canucks Army Prospects Report, where we take a look at the week that was for each Canucks prospect. As we enter the middle of January, we are almost halfway through this playing season for Canucks prospects. This means that we can start making pretty decent determinations that their output so far is fairly representative of their true talent level and current usage.
So let's continue past the jump for more!

We predicted a closely contested game earlier today, and for the first 50 minutes or so, our guess looked like it would prove accurate. But after another night of toothless offensive play from the Canucks at 5-on-5 and 5-on-4, things went to hell in the final 10 minutes, as the Nashville Predators pulled away late in the game. Vancouver fell to 0-1 on their road trip with a disappointing 5-1 loss to the NHL leading Nashville Predators.

After dropping their final two games of their five game home stand, the Canucks take to road to battle the league leading Nashville Predators tonight at 5:00 PM PST. Vancouver's biggest challenge of late has been putting puck past opposing goalies, and that task gets even tougher tonight as they face the league's stingiest team in their own rink.
Read past the jump for a preview of what is likely to be a closely contested game.

It was another rollercoaster weekend for Oilers fans. You were on a high after Friday's convincing victory over Chicago, but the winning ride didn't last long after yesterday's loss to the Florida Panthers.
We are officially past the halfway point of the NHL season, with only the Rangers, Canucks, Panthers and Blue Jackets not playing 41 games, but we've seen 627 of 1230 games played.
Here are some thoughts on the first half and some expectations for the second.
