So we've been satiating your appet....wait...you've been licking your li...still too animal-like hm...How about: we've been making noises....oh for goodness' sake!

Here it is, the first edition of Wolf Prowl, the Army's weekly rundown of the Chicago Wolves. Yesterday we brought you an interview with Ted Gruber, noted (by some, well me and Drance anyway) as guru of the Wolves blogging scene. During pre-season we talked to Jason Shaver, play-by-play man of the Wolves, but today is a different, well, beast. (The animal analogies seem unavoidable, don't they). Today is the first entry in what will be a weekly update about the Canucks AHL affiliate: the Chicago Wolves.

All summer fanboys were excited about what Chris Tanev might be able to do with a full season of work. I suggested that he was a shoe-in for the top-six as recently as September. Cam Charron took the over on 5 goals for Tanev during the preseason...

Well today, Chris Tanev was assigned to the Canucks AHL affiliate the Chicago Wolves. The move in part makes room for Ryan Kesler (who seems to be returning from injury) and also reflects the fact that Chris Tanev has looked less than his calm, composed, chain-smoking self through three games this season.
