Game Day Recon: Game #46 - Ducks @ Canucks
It's not just one thing that has gone wrong in Anaheim this season. It's a combination of everything. Poor goaltending, poor defence, and poor offence has led to a REALLY poor season. And we've only just hit the midway point of the season.
With the fire sale imminent (if you believe those in the know), because of a lack of production from the team's biggest stars and highest paid players, you have to wonder just who will be playing for this team by the end of the year. And... will any of them be wearing Canucks colours in short order?

The mid-season doldrums are officially here. With winter finally arriving in Alberta this weekend, Lowetide takes a look at the Oilers as they tumble down the standings.

Rising Action is a sometimes weekly, sometimes bi-weekly column from Canucks Army writer Patrick Johnston which comments on issues in the media. This week, it's all about the narrative.

The Good and the Bad of this past week.
It's Friday. So we close out the "Week That Was" with our latest volume of Cheers and Jeers.
This week, I send Pierre Gauthier to his hotel room to pack, while giving a big stack of congratulatory pancakes to Dustin Penner... and Ken Hitchcock, cuz YOU KNOW that guy likes to eat! AMIRITE?!

Matt Climie and the Wolves had a fantastic week.

The Wolves are roaring - four straight wins has vaulted them into second place in the division. The Charlotte Checkers are just two points up on the Wolves, but the boys from suburban Chicago have two games in hand. Given their opposition this week, there's no reason to think they won't carry on with their recent run of form.
