Andy Strickland reported earlier today that the Canucks were closing in on a deal with 6,5 pugilist Brad Winchester. Good way to find out when the deal has been signed is to constantly refresh the roster page on the teams official site – as it will likely be updated prior to the official media-release announcing the signing.

The Canucks and Coyotes have swapped February home-dates, meaning the Canucks will now play at Jobbing.com Arena on February 28th, instead of at Rogers Center. Here’s The White Towel breaking down the ramifications of the swap.

    i don’t understand why the canucks are signing so many 4th liners. it doesn’t make any sense because of the way AV deploys the 4th line, making no difference to the end result.

  • Mantastic I think the Canucks are hoping to have a stronger fourth line, I think they’re hoping that internal competition helps it take shape. But yeah Gillis’ “Pokemon Approach” to 6,5 wingers is at least a little bit baffling.
