Sorry, Chairman, but I lost a lot of respect for the Nucks after the WCF last year. Not only was it a pitiful display, but so very unnecessary. Vancouver was too talented for that crap. Not that the Sharks weren't just as pathetic, but who gives a rats ass about them right now?
I always look forward to seeing the Wings come to town - another big game and a measuring stick for both teams with nearly identical records and with both teams rounding into form.
The usual hot suspects on the Canucks are hot - you know who they are. Others include Jannik Hansen, Mason Raymond, Chris Higgins, Cody Hodgson and Michael Bublé.
The main concern for the Canucks will be the number 3 defensive pairing with Andrew Alberts and Alexander Sulzer in for Keith Ballard (possibly) and Aaron Rome (definitely). If Ballard plays (dealing with back spasms), Sulzer will be out.
The most significant injury at the moment is to David Booth (knee) who had been playing exceptional when he was hurt a couple of weeks ago.
Good luck Wings fans.
I hope to see a good game by both teams, with the Wings never letting the Nucks get even a whiff of a win.
