On today’s episode of Canucks Conversation, we spent some time giving our ideal Vancouver Canucks defence pairings as Ethan Bear gets set to make his debut in the blue and green against the New Jersey Devils tonight.
First, as stated in today’s scenes from morning skate article, here’s what we expect the Canucks will go with tonight:
Hughes-Schenn
OEL-Myers
Stillman-Bear
Now, most of the conversation in both the chat and on our show stemmed around the Canucks’ third pairing. It appears as though Jack Rathbone will be the odd man out on the left, with Kyle Burroughs coming out on the right.
Faber wants to see Kyle Burroughs get a shot on the left side ahead of Stillman, and I talked at length about my belief that Jack Rathbone deserves a longer look than the one he’s gotten so far.
Listeners threw together some combos of their own, which included playing Ethan Bear with Quinn Hughes and Jack Rathbone alongside Luke Schenn.
