Barry's New Approach
It was mentioned in today's Vancouver Province that Mats Sundin's agent will be taking a new approach as he attempts to force his client's hand one way or the other...to play or not to play.
In the coming weeks, Barry will be visiting Mats in Sweden and the two will be taking in some hockey games.Maybe some visual therapy will bring out the passion to play.
Cody May Stick
As the Vancouver Canucks continue to look for that elusive top-six forward it seems that management and coaches are seriously considering keeping 2008 First Rounder Cody Hodgson with the big club. Looking at the depth of the organization you would be doing Hodgson, and the fans, a considerable diservice if you placed him in a battle to make the team. His skills and vision of the game clearly place him within the top 12 forwards on the clubs depth chart and therefore he should earn a spot barring any lapse in his recent performances.
The Twining of Bernier
After an impressive outing crashing the net against the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday evening, Steve Bernier found himself on a line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin during practice on Wednesday.
It is expected that the threesome will form a line in at least of the the Canucks next two pre-season contests in either San Jose on Saturday or Anahiem on Sunday.
