Canucks and Beyond
Entries with the tag: dan hamuis
It’s no secret that the Canucks are reeling from injuries—and at a bad time as the playoffs loom closer—which leads one to consider this, from The Province:
Given the nine-point lead over the Flyers, it shouldn’t take the remainder of the schedule for Vancouver to clinch first overall, leaving three or four meaningless games before the playoffs start. At which point you might be tempted to ask, can’t the Canucks just forfeit and get some rest?
On the plus side, no more stretchers and surgeries for any more Canucks (*prayers for Manny Malhotra and Dan Hamhuis would be appropriate here). But on the other hand, the scoring race is probably pretty important to you if your name is Sedin. Further, there’s always the argument that gliding into the playoffs after virtually laying around for two weeks isn’t the best way to get your team’s motor in high gear heading into the first round.
