Carol Schram: Canucks aim to move up in Pacific, end road trip with tough test vs. Jets The Vancouver Canucks will need to find a way to get the best of Connor Hellebuyck and conquer their Bell MTS Place demons if they want to finish their five-game road trip on a high note and take a crack at moving into first place in the Pacific Division when they face off against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

Thx Carol

Always liked Connor & would probably swap. Cannot go wrong having any of the 3.

Onto the game. The Jets always skate & bang us & we don’t give them our best very often. Helly is the biggest hurdle. Bring the speed & execute & leave nothing in the tank to end the trip. 3-2 Canucks Bo Petey JTM

Thanks Carol,

I wouldn't trade Brock. However Pearson may be an asset you could move. Sell high.

So you have Brock over Laine & Connor ok or you didn’t bother reading the blog.

Yes sure sell high & screw the PO push. Bo gets a winger that gels & you want to rebuild.

Hellybuck has been hot and cold , you really don't know what guy will come out that night. I have hi in my pool so I follow his games.

Beagle and Horvats line will be busy shutting down and Petey's line needs to put pressure on.

One day we will break the curse , hopefully tonight.

Thanks Carol.

Would swap for Laine because he has more pure skill, wouldn't swap for Conner given how close they are and the advantage of Brocks chemistry with Petey.

4-2 Canucks curse breaking night!

Another test tonight & see what we are made of. Win & it’s 6pts after a disastrous start on this trip. Success. Lose & it’s an ok trip but not what’s needed for a serious PO push. Gotta make hay & have other teams chase us imo.

Gonna be a fun a game

Connor is the more mobile of the 3 is my reason. Laine when on is lethat but streaky. Brock’s contract is the best value but idk what his next deal will look like & hoping he gives us a small break.

What are the chances that Jim is looking at trading a 25 G 75 pts guy with a reasonable contract that will be turning 23

Like Carol said Hellybuck 6-1 vs Van at home. Have no choice but to go with WPG on the pro-line.

Winnipeg has had good teams the last few years while the Canucks have sucked. However it always seems like the're playing them at the tail end of a 5 or 6 game road trip and a 3rd game in 4 nights situation. A contributing factor?

On a good note an easy flight & less TZ issues coming home for games but yes it’s a game that needs a big effort.

I don't think Carol was suggesting that there's any possibility of Brock getting traded, she was just asking the question as a means of comparing the 3 players.

Brock is on a good contract
Connor cost more but locked up longer
Laine on a short contract

I'll probably take the game as a tie as I think it's OT. Wheeler with the winner.

Exactly. JB's said he's not trading anyone until he see's what the team looks like when healthy. So that's not happening anytime soon.

The team will never be healthy. Has any team ever been 100% healthy? Benning shouldn’t speak
