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.

The Vancouver Canucks are going to the Stanley Cup Final! It was amazing when Jim Robson said it 17 years ago, and it was just as amazing when Jim Hughson echoed that at the end of the Canucks' Game 5 series-clinching victory.
Now, the final battle in this post-season war awaits them.

For three consecutive rounds we have called for the Canucks to lose their serieses. For three consecutive rounds we have been disappointed. We have now upped the ante and had a buddy in Vegas place a cool $10 beans on every team in the Conference Finals to win save the Canucks. Money talks Nation and our money says "anyone but Vancouver."

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Final Game 5 - Sharks @ Canucks
They were outplayed. They made two costly blunders. Ryan Kesler was limping badly. They were down by a goal with less than 30 seconds to play in the game. Things weren't looking good for the Vancouver Canucks. Then Kesler, playing one leg, tipped in a Henrik Sedin shot past Antti Niemi. And the Canucks had life. And then, after 30 minutes of overtime, Kevin Bieksa scored the weirdest goal in Canucks history. The "Bieksa Bounce" sent the Vancouver Canucks to the Stanley Cup Final.
What a game.
