So another trade deadline has come and gone, and the Canucks, as usual, end up doing next to nothing. I'm not here to bash on Mike Gillis, it seemed like there wasn't much out there for the taking. We got a Stastny. Not Paul. Not even Peter, Anton or Marion. We did end up getting Albert Andrews or Andrew Alberts or Andy Whatshisname. There's another guy, but I can't even muster the energy to find his name, so I can butcher it in print. Who has the time that would take? Those would be seconds I could never get back.

Vancouver has become notorious for its lack of activity at the trade deadline. Last year, Mike Gillis opted to do absolutely nothing; a year earlier Matt Pettinger was the sole acquisition. Yesterday was also a relatively quiet affair with only three deals made.

Gold Medal winning goaltender Roberto Luongo faces gold medal winning head coach Mike Babcock tonight as the Red Wings host the Canucks at Joe Louis Arena. The Canucks are playing the second of back-to-back games afters beating the Blue Jackets in Columbus last night.

The Calgary Flames got the jump on the National Hockey League's annual clearout sale by making a couple of major deals before the Olympic break. What will Darryl Sutter be up to today, if anything?
Join us throughout the day for news and views (and perhaps the odd irreverent comment) about the 2010 trade deadline.

It's time to deal with the fact that red has turned back to blue for all Canuck fans. The symbolism of this, so obvious Rick Reilly probably wouldn't even use it, gives us a nice look into the feelings fans face as the NHL season resumes. As we literally exchange all our Team Canada hoodies and toques for a return to our Canuck jerseys and ball caps, I have to say, it just feels strange. Maybe even a little depressing.
