The passing of time can often be a cruel occurrence, on March 15th Canucks.com proudly reported that Mikael Samuelsson had been named the NHL’s first star of the week, for the week of 8-14 March. During that time Samuelsson accrued some impressive stats, ten points six goals and four assists in four games. Then on 17th March the site reports that Samuelsson will miss at least two – three weeks with an upper body injury. In seventy games the Canucks RW has a total of thirty goals placing him second in that category for team stats, he also has fifty-three points. With just twelve games left on the regular season schedule this could cause a rather problematic situation for Vancouver, or could it?

Willie Mitchell is a master-disrupter at close quarters – in front of the net and especially in the corners. He anticipates well, is good at angling his body in the right ways, and, with that long stick, is able to knock the puck off opposing players – even when it seems they are out of reach. His poke checking ability too is superb. Aside from these technicalities, he’s a workhorse and a good team guy.

I'm sure everyone remembers former Canucks and current Leafs General Manager Brian Burke. Face it, it's hard not to. Burke's never met a TV camera he didn't love. He has a bombastic personality and has a penchant for making the biggest trades while on the biggest stage.
