Would seem to be the logical choice, but there's been nothing official yet. Given the Canucks' flight status, I doubt we will hear anything until very close to game time.

Meh. It's happening around the league.

Chicago has had it's toughest challenge from the last team in the league, twice.

At this rate, there might not be a game. Canucks still haven't left Vancouver.

There's still plenty of time. Anyways, I'd rather they re-schedule this game rather than have to play that close to getting off a plane.

Latest update.

1 hour to Calgary, say 1 hour to get to the rink...starting to cut it close, IMO.

Are you kidding me? It wasn't that bad until about 9am this morning. Since then my deck which had no snow on it when I got up at 7:3- has about a 12" snow drift on it. It's also white out conditions now with blowing snow. For the life of me I do not understand why they didn't leave last night.

Also - John Shannon's tweeting that Luongo gets the start tonight.

Seems like a logical choice, but it is Shannon. I won't hold my breath until Murph or someone else reports it.

Has Luongo been traded for Bozak yet like Shannon reported during the lockout?

Everybody knows something behind the scenes is going on with AV and Ballard.

It makes no logical sense why he would sit, he has been our best d-man this year.

The only issue is finding out exactly what it is.

I hope the media asks.

I'm just shaking my head at this time. If there's truly nothing he can do to stay out of the damn doghouse, then do him a favor and trade him.
Only reason Barker would've played before Ballard is because Barker took the pregame warmup whereas Ballard didn't, so of course Barker would've played over Ballard. Everyone seems to think Barker is now ahead of Ballard, which is not the case in this instance.

I guess you don't remember Khudobin. We've had trouble with bad starters since.

He hasn't ''been our best defenceman this year''.

The start time could always get pushed back 2 hours.
