For the second time this week, the Vancouver Canucks play host to a visiting team on the second half of a road back-to-back, and for the second time this week, their opponent has dropped a game to the Calgary Flames the night prior. Tonight's foe, the San Jose Sharks, have been struggling to gain their usual footing in the Pacific this season, and sit just two points ahead of Vancouver for 3rd in the division.
Read past the jump for a preview of tonight's contest.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Chris Tanev will be out of the lineup on Thursday night with an upper-body injury when the Canucks host the San Jose Sharks in a key Pacific Divison matchup. Compounding that issue is that Tanev-lite, Frank Corrado, will also miss the game.
So with Corrado and Tanev joining Kevin Bieksa in the infirmary, Vancouver will be without their three best right-handed shooting defenseman. It would seem that Jim "nostradamus" Benning acquired Adam Clendening just in the nick of the time.

Like any good ABBA playlist, we start this week with some Dancing Queen and finish up with a Mamma Mia.

Here at Canucks Army, we love three things more than anything in the world: prospects, prospect rankings, and whining about prospect rankings. Every summer we vote on and rank the top-20 Canucks prospects to take stock of what's in the system, and every summer we hear vocal complaints from our readers they disagree with our rankings.
So this year, in our mid-term ranking, we gave you the chance to vote on prospects and have a say on these players. Since our summer rankings, we've simplified the definition of "prospect" to any player in the Vancouver Canucks' system that is eligible for the Calder Trophy if they were to play in the NHL this year. This means that players like Linden Vey and Joacim Eriksson who were not rated over the summer will be covered in this series.
Without further adieu, here are the Canucks prospects that were rated 20th to 17th.
