Is Luongo confirmed as the starter? Never thought I'd say this but this game against Columbus is huge. They're the hottest team in the league over the past 5 games. Wow.

I like what the other guy brought up in the PGT for the Wild game:

lay a pooper for Cooper

Doesn't sound like #canucks Bieksa will play in CBJ. Luongo starts. Pinizotto has one more game w/Wolves before he joins team.

This isn't going to be an easy game by any means. They've beaten DETx2 and us on their winning streak. They've also been within one goal of CHI twice (once in OT) and STL once.

Let's pray we get Mason. Unless we make him look like an all-star again.

Seriously, time to put the big boy pants on.

I wonder if Gillis is letting AV make all the decisions from here on out. That way, if we don't make the playoffs or get bounced early, it is all on him

I fail to see what another 4th line grinding WINGER is going to do for us.

Yes, Luongo is confirmed.

Big game - the Canucks can't afford to sleepwalk in this one as evidenced by our last outting against these guys. They beat you with their lunch pails and hard hats. Canucks need to match that.

They should feel humiliated after coming into a building with several days off, against a team that played the night before, and getting outworked, outskated and outhustled in just about every facet of the game in Minnesota. Hopefully they show some pride with a good effort.

I don't think he is confirmed 100% not playing, but I think an extra few days off to be sure is the right thing to do, here a quote from him

Bieksa: "Felt great to skate in a full practice today. We'll see how I feel tomorrow on game day."

none of these minor moves (Ebbet recall and Pinner as well) are going to solve our problems, but they aren't expected to, they are decent small moves and should not be evaluated with the expectation of turning this team around

Schroeder's scratched for Ebbett? Not that Schroeder has played great but ugh... Ebbett in the lineup scares me. You just know he'll end up on the second.

Schroeder has been sent down to the AHL, probably better for him to be there with Jensen then playing on the fourth line here

Schroeder isn't just scratched - he's been re-assigned to Chicago.

I will be betting all my vCash on Vancouver this game. I don't see how we can possibly lose to Columbus twice in the span of a week.

Ebett had 5 goals in 18 games last year. He's a beast

I didn't see how Detroit could possibly lose to Columbus twice in the span of a week.

Canucks are struggling hard right, I wouldn't be surprised if Columbus takes this game, especially with them being the home team. Hopefully things can get turned around but I'm not exactly optimistic.

Well, he (Malhotra, technically, but Manny was taking Ebbett's place for now) was on a line with Raymond and Hansen in practice.
