Game Day Recon #10 - Devils @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks return to action after 6 days off to host the last-place New Jersey Devils. The Devils have been plagued by injuries to their defense and are now without one of their top forwards. Sound familiar? Yes, the Devils and Canucks injury situations are eerily similar. But the difference is that the Canucks are getting healthy quickly, as they will see Alex Burrows and Keith Ballard return this week, and possibly Dan Hamhuis as well. The Devils, on the other hand, are not close to having those players return, and now have to play without Zach Parise.

The game many of us grew up playing or watching will once again have to face one of its deepest and darkest secrets now that Graham James is back in Canada. This time around, I hope the hockey world embraces the victims and sets the stage for other victims to come forward because the hockey world will support them too.

Let's face it folks. We have six days between games and there isn't much to talk about in Canucks land right now.
The Rypien saga looks to be mostly contained. The Canucks don't have rookies in the lineup where they need to send them back to the minors or to junior. And the supposed goaltending "controversy" was all for naught.
So let's review the Canucks season so far. Why not, eh?

Game Day Recon #09 - Avalanche @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks are starting the season by dealing with mounting injury problems, especially on defense. Tonight they face another team with missing bodies on the blueline, as they face Colorado at Rogers Arena. Will the Canucks depth on defense be able to withstand the high-flying Avs forwards? And will the young and inexperienced Avs D be able to contain the Canucks forwards who may have finally found its groove.
