Good work by Gordon Macintyre on Byron Bitz, who says his recent hip-flexor issues are the result of getting back into game-shape – and not a recurrence of the various ailments that caused him to miss two full seasons. Fingers crossed that he’s right.

Jason Brough points out that Bitz’s questionable status presents the Canucks with a conundrum headed into next weeks trade deadline.
