The season is finally underway, and wouldn't you know it, the Canucks are 2-0-0. They've yet to secure their first regulation win, but as the adage goes, they don't ask how they just ask how many.

Some of the more maligned acquisitions of this regime have figured relatively prominently in those victories, no less. That has to count for something. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but maybe things won't be so bad after all?

That being said, the Canucks love it when the Hurricanes come to Vancouver. Since 2009, Vancouver is 6-0-2 against Carolina at Rogers Arena. Last night's win hopefully has built up some energy for puck drop tonight.
