Game Day for the Vancouver Canucks is finally here!
Most of the veterans have remained in Vancouver, but there are still some interesting players to follow during tonight's game with the New York Islanders in Kraft Hockeyville - Terrace, BC.
The likely lineup for tonight's game can be found at the Canucks website here.
Here is who I will be watching tonight.

After a long offseason, those Vancouver Canucks are starting to look like one piece of ACE. I know from experience if you know what I mean!

The Canucks have been given a small blessing in disguise. As Pavol Demitra recuperates from shoulder surgery to start the season, his spot in the line-up is freed up. This gives Alain Vignault a little more flexibility to slot in one of the youngsters.
The question now is: Should Coach V slot in Sergei Shirokov or Cody Hodgson?

We have a buddy who has convinced himself for some reason that today - 09-09-09 - is a day of of magic and wonder because of the fact the date can be summarized with the same number thrice. We wonder if everyone has a buddy like this, who looks at the calendar several times a year and exclaims “DAMN SON! Do you realize that it’s (insert stupid date here)” Then he looks around in awe and wonder, as though gumdrops will rain from the sky simply because it’s September 9, 2009.

There was some worry around Vancouver over the length of new contract extension signed by Roberto Luongo. Some said that it was too long, and that the Canucks were married to Luongo for better or worse with no ability to move him. However, we learn now that there are clauses in Luongo's contract that benefit both him and the Canucks and give both parties a way out.
This creates only one thing - a specific window of opportunity for the Vancouver Canucks to be a legitimate contender for the Stanley Cup.
So, can they do it?
