Was there really a time this season when the Vancouver Canucks weren't steamrolling the competition? Yes, but that was early on, and even after a rash of injuries decimated Vancouver's blueline, the Canucks weathered the storm.
Now, with the trade deadline aroung the corner and players returning from injuries, is there anything the Canucks need to do? Thanks to long-term injured reserve, the team should be able to play with its full compliment of defensemen, though some creative cap management may be required.
Outside of that, the Canucks boast possibly the strongest top-to-bottom roster in the NHL. Some minor tweaking may be involved for depth purposes but no major trades are becessary in Vancouver.
Need: Vancouver's only question is the rotating fourth line, which makes it a need and a source of expendablele assets.
Players In Trade Rumors: Cody Hodgson ($0.55 million)
Prediction: The Canucks make a a minor deal to try and solidify their fourth line.
