On Malhotra's Value, Part II

When I joined Canucks Army this past summer - that ticker tape parade was a bit much, but appreciated nonetheless - I penned my first piece on the hidden value of Manny Malhotra. At the time, there were some questions about whether Mike Gillis overpaid for effectively a checking center, especially in light of the cap troubles Vancouver has been in this season. As we have our eye on 2011 and the half way point of the season, I thought I'd revisit this question of Malhotra's value based on those preseason expectations.

At this rate I should really start playing the lotto.

Game Day Recon #29 - Blue Jackets @ Canucks

It's a mid-week game. It's their only game in 5 days. Their next game is against the hated Leafs on Saturday in the coveted headlining Hockey Night in Canada spot. They're playing the Columbus Blue Jackets.

This has all the earmarks of a phoned-in game, doesn't it?. God, I barely even want to watch this game.

Let's hope the Vancouver Canucks have a much better attitude than I do about their game tonight.

Game Day Recon #28 - Canucks @ Oilers

The Vancouver Canucks look to rebound from an overtime loss last night at home, as they travel to Edmonton to face the Oilers for the second time this season at Rexall Place. Last time around, former Oiler Raffi Torres scored a hat-trick and the game winning goal after his former club clawed back from a 3-0 deficit.

Has Raffi got some more magic in him tonight?
