Luc Bourdon... Forever in our hearts.

Today is a day of mixed emotions for me.
I wrote this article two years ago, and re-posted it today, anticipating that I would have to change some things around. But as I read it again, I have nothing to change. My emotions remain the same. The only difference is that my youngest daughter is now three years old, and has started pre-school. In reality, I am probably more emotional about Luc's passing now, knowing that Canucks are battling for hockey's ultimate prize and knowing that Luc would want nothing more than to be in that room, battling with them.
But something tells me that Luc Bourdon never left that dressing room. He's right there with them all.

Alain Vigneault's extreme method of doling out ice time and circumstances has been mentioned in this space before. Aside from the Sedin twins, no player better represents the Vancouver coach's habits better than Manny Malhotra. While the twins enjoyed some of the most favorable starting positions in the entire league this year, Malhotra was at the other end of the spectrum. As a result, his value to Vancouver isn't quite revealed in counting numbers.

Manny Malhotra was skating with his Canuck teammates at practice today after being cleared for light contact by team doctors. Malhotra will still need to undergo another surgery on the eye in the off season, however that procedure is not required for him to return to action in the Stanley Cup Final. Though Canucks fans can't help but be excited about this latest development, the debate about whether or not Manny Malhotra will suit up for the Canucks in the postseason continues.

The Vancouver Canucks received some excellent news early Friday, as Manny Malhotra was cleared for full practice with the team. As the Canucks get ready to fight the final battle for the Stanley Cup, the possibility of having Malhotra back in the lineup has Canucks fans and media absolutely salivating.
But let's remember one thing... the fact that Malhotra has progressed this far this quickly nothing short of a miracle.
