The dressing room is supposed to be a safe place for players. That is said time and again between coaches and players. Things that are said or happen between those walls stay between those walls.
Joe Thornton is making headlines today, for a comment he directed in a humorous way at a scrum of reporters that were interviewing another player. He was not being interviewed himself. He said something sarcastic about scoring four goals in one game and what he would do to celebrate.

Will he do it? I don't know, I ain't got no crystal ball.
This is a regular Friday feature combining a healthy mixture of observation, analysis, and foresight on the Vancouver Canucks. If you'd like to get at me about anything covered in this column, follow me on Twitter at @yyjordan and let's start a textual relationship (wink).

Three-game suspension for VAN's Allex Edler.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) October 11, 2013
On Thursday night the Vancouver Canucks lost not only the game (in a convincing fashion, to boot), but also defenseman Alexander Edler, who has been suspended for 3 games by the NHL for his check to the head of Tomas Hertl.
Read on past the jump for some analysis on the suspension, and what this means going forward.

Following Canuck Prospects is one of my interests (inspired by the guys over at Bolt Prospects), and something I've started paying a lot more attention to. While the title is a work in project right now, I hope to write a weekly update on the status of all the Canuck prospects, Utica Comets and anything else related. Based on the prospects series this site ran back in the summer, it's clear that you guys are interested in keeping tabs on how the future Canucks are doing in their endeavors.
Where I can I will try and provide some analytical stuff as well, but in some of these leagues even finding the box score can be difficult. Follow me at @nuckprospects as I try and keep up with the latest in prospect news. I will try and cover the guys in the system that you don't often see on TV; sure, Zac Dalpe may be considered a prospect and you technically don't really see him on your TV, but he is outside of the scope of this report.

On Thursday night the Canucks lost, once again, to the San Jose Sharks. The Canucks just can't seem to get over the hump against this Sharks club, which at least to my eyes appears to be bigger, faster, and better where it counts than Vancouver is.
We'll get into it more after the jump.
