As you know, our friends at The Royal Half have created a weekly segment known as the Pacific War Room… It's a wrap-up of the past week in the Pacific from some of the
best and brightest bloggers who cover the Pacific Division. Well, those writers have spent another week smashing their faces on their keyboards until something spilled out, and here we are. Ladies and gentlemen, we present the Pacific War Room.

For a brief moment, it appeared as if a flaw had appeared in Tim Murray's master plan. His Sabres, victors of 13 consecutive greatest tank battles, had somehow found themselves ahead 1-0 in the 1st period against the Vancouver Canucks. But General Ted Nolan is nothing if not resilient. He rolled out his armoured division in full power at the start of the second period, ensuring that the fantastic streak of tanking prowess would remain intact.
The Canucks dominated the Sabres for rest of the night, coming away with a 5-2 win. Read past the jump for a recap.

Why should the NHL continue to reward the Edmonton Oilers for on-ice failure and organizational ineptitude by giving them a better chance to select the cream of the crop at the Entry Draft while more successful teams line up behind and wait their turn? It shouldn’t.

There are no two ways about this, so let's just get this right out of the way: the Buffalo Sabres are the worst team to be assembled in the past decade and are tanking for Connor McDavid so brazenly that they're literally already having McDavid play home games in Buffalo's rink. They played and lost to the Edmonton Oilers last night, and the Canucks have been resting since Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. This is as close as guaranteed win night as there is in the NHL (except if you're the San Jose Sharks that is), and the Canucks should be plenty motivated to win one for Ryan Miller anyways.
