Game Day: Canucks Young Stars vs Flames Young Stars

One thing we learned is that apparently this group is really good at staging comebacks and getting late, clutch goals. Also we learned that no one informed the WHL officials that NHL rules apply in all situations, not just some.

Will the NHL publicize divers?

Interesting tidbit here from the New York Daily News , pertaining to last week's news that the NHL is cracking down on embellishment: [Bill] Daly, the NHL's deputy commissioner, told the Daily News via email on Friday that the NHL's new fines for players and coaches for excessive diving will be determined after each game by video review, regardless of the call on the ice. In other words, just because a player isn't called for embellishment in a game doesn't mean the league can't charge him for it later.

Top pick Ehlers iffy for today's game vs. Canucks

Nikolaj Ehlers, the Jets' 2014 first-round draft pick, is only a maybe when the team's prospects hit the ice today for their second game of the Canucks Young Stars Classic tournament. The Jets meet the Vancouver Canucks at 4 p.m. and Ehlers will be a late decision because he tweaked his groin late in Friday's tournament opener against Calgary.

Gallagher: Burrows puts last season behind him, wants to get back to playoffs

The Province is getting ready to reveal who the 101 Greatest Vancouver Canucks of all time are... Who made the cut? Of all the glorious campaigns he's had over the years, whereby he's dragged himself out of the Eastern League to the American League and then into an NHL career that paid him $6 million for last season, that last season will not be well remembered by anyone other than his financial adviser. It's not often a guy gets hurt in the first game of the season and in his last game at the world championships, but that's what the likable Vancouver winger went through - so you would have to think he's due for a different set of breaks.
