Could Daniel Sedin be the Canucks' savior?

It has been a little over a month since Daniel Sedin suffered a concussion, the result of Duncan Keith's gutless, retributive elbow to his cranium. After practicing with the team on Tuesday, and skating again Wednesday afternoon without the reoccurence of symptoms, Daniel Sedin is slated to return to action in time for game four. While I'm not a doctor or an expert in concussions - the entire thing makes me queasy.

A tale of two 'tenders.

Even before it was confirmed by Alain Vigneault on Wednesday afternoon, all signs were pointing to Cory Schneider getting the nod for the Canucks in tonight's "Do or Die" game four against the Kings. With the team on the brink, the Canucks have tipped their hand: Cory Schneider is starting tonight, and persumably he'll be the team's starter beyond this season.

I haven't been impressed at all with Ryan Kesler this postseason, and not many people are. Abs aside, playoff Kesler has appeared totally different, and less effective, than regular season Kesler. Diving, whining, slashing, all the bad stuff that has made people who don't watch this team as closely as we do say: "say, that isn't right".

Well, it's Do or Die now. A win tonight staves off possible elimination for 4 days. A loss sends the Canucks packing into the off-season with a whole lot of decisions to make. While a progression past this first round seems unlikely, if not impossible, Canucks fans are hoping to see their favourite team return home for at least one more game.

Tonight, though, the big question is: Will he or won't he? Will Daniel Sedin be healthy enough to make a triumphant return to the lineup? Many Canucks fans are praying to see #22 on the ice tonight, in hopes that his return can spark the team into a belated appearance in the "win" column.
