Game Day Recon #61 - Canadiens @ Canucks
THE CAVALRY IS COMING!!! RELIEF IS ON ITS WAY!! The Canucks get a double-dose of great news with 22 games to play. As the Canucks host the ever-popular Habs tonight, we learn that both Dan Hamhuis and Keith Ballard will return to the Canucks lineup.
While the rookie defensemen held their own during the Canucks injury woes on the blueline, Canucks brass have to be breathing a little easier as their two big off-season acquisitions come back.

Sports radio in Canada is changing. Quickly.
Rogers Sportsnet and TSN have both added branded radio stations to their media conglomerates in Toronto. The landscape of Toronto sports radio has changed, and if you're a sports fans, then those changes are all for the good. More reliable, trusted content bridged across a variety of different forms of media.
So the question for Vancouver sports fans - when is Vancouver next on the docket?

This is getting to be re-goddamn-diculous!
Game Day Recon #59 - Canucks @ Predators
Salo. Edler. Hamhuis. Ballard. Rome. Alberts. Sweatt. And now... Bieksa. It has gone from a minor inconvenience to an inexplicable epidemic. If you are a defenseman for the Vancouver Canucks, you will get hurt this season.
And the Canucks are playing the Predators tonight with a D that's made up of 3 players from the Manitoba Moose with a combined set of 12 NHL games.

The defence corps of the Vancouver Canucks has started to resemble the participants of a death march over the past few weeks. Alex Edler’s injury triggered some sort of bizarre cascade effect, as in the three weeks since Lea Sweatt, Keith Ballard, Dan Hamhuis and finally Andrew Alberts have all fallen by the wayside. All it would take now to completely decimate the Vancouver blueline now would be injuries to Bieksa and Ehrhoff, along with a stiff breeze hitting Sami Salo.
While the injury list has been mostly bad news for Vancouver, it has had one positive affect: uncovering Chris Tanev as an NHL defenceman.
