The World Junior Championships are less than two weeks away, and Team Canada is poised to make their final cuts tomorrow morning. It won’t be an easy decision, as the team boasts incredible depth at almost every position.

Game Day Recon: Game #30 - Canucks at Blue Jackets
Tin Soldiers, and the Richard Nixon of NHL team's are coming to Ohio tonight, as the visiting Canucks face-off against the lowly Blue Jackets for the third time this season. This is the Canucks third game on their current East Coast swing, and they're, thus far, undefeated on the trip. Cody Hodgson, who many feared would be out for a while with a concussion following an incidentally vicious head-shot from Nick Foligno on Saturday night, will be in the lineup. Roberto Luongo, who has been hot of late gets the start, his fourth in a row. In the Blue Jackets meanwhile, are throwing Steve Mason in net, so take the over.
While the Canucks have dominated the Blue Jackets so far this season, and historically, this Blue Jackets team is better than their record indicates, and if their goaltending holds-out (unlikely with mason in net) they could give the Canucks some trouble this afternoon. B.C. born youngster Ryan Johansen had a borderline dominant performance in a losing effort against the Canucks the last time these two teams met, and I'll be curious to see him skate again. Kid looks like the real deal.

What follows is Victoria's rather epic story of how she's decided, not just to Embrace the Hate, but to commit to it for life!:
Embrace the Hate Entry by Victoria (@ConcreteFluff):
I often tell people I am in a “mixed marriage” because in my eyes I am. Of course when they see my husband – blonde hair, blue eyes, Caucasian – and they look at me (brown hair, green eyed, Caucasian) they think I’m a mental moron. But as far as I am concerned when one person loves one hockey franchise and the other person loves the other – THAT is a form of a mixed marriage.
