The Vancouver Canucks are in Anaheim tonight for a preseason match up with the Ducks. Tonight’s game will be the first one this preseason where Vancouver actually ices a line up that resembles an NHL team.
So far the Canucks have been playing the balance of what will be the Chicago Wolves roster along with some aging veterans trying to stick with a team one last time.
Time for that is over as the regular season is approaching.
Tonight will be the 2011 debut for Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Alex Burrows, Dan Hamhuis, Kevin Bieksa, Alex Edler, Sami Salo, Mikael Samuelsson and Roberto Luongo.
Despite their roster being mostly in place, there are a couple of questions and things to accomplish with their remaining preseason games.
