Lots of news at once so I made a new thread.

As per AV via @BradZiemer:

- Higgins has mild knee strain. Back before playoffs.
- Tanev remains out indefinitely. Sounds like he'll miss some of the playoffs. Very choice wording of how they hope to injury won't last "too long"
- Hansen was benched last game because AV thought others were playing better
- Schneider is feeling much better. Couldn't watch game last night because hotel was only showing Oilers game.



NEW:
- As per Gillis, Tanev is going to be back for the first round! He's expected to be out 10-14 days more, so he'll make it for the very end of the season.
- Booth could be back for round two

Odd about Hansen but at least he isn't sick/hurt. I am glad to hear Higgy will be back for the playoffs but dislike not having tanev :(

If Hansen ends up in AV's doghouse, AV's asking for a fight.

Funny, Schneids had to watch the Oilers with Gene Principe. :lol:

Tanev injured his right leg in the first period of Saturday’s game when hit by Tim Jackman. He left the bench but returned to play the final two periods. Tanev did not play Monday and was originally listed as day-to-day. Obviously that has changed. Asked about Tanev returning for the playoffs, Vigneault replied: “Not quite sure yet.”

Tanev was later spotted leaving Rogers Arena with a ‘moon boot’ on his right foot.

Ankle.

well we only have 1 goal against in 2 games.

Also Hansen being benched was probably just a wakeup call since he only has 2 shots in 3 games and has been pointless

Tanev is a great Dman, but if you think we're done just cause he might miss some of the playoffs, you're really overselling his value.

Edler - Bieksa
Hamhuis - Garrison
Alberts/Barker/Vandermeer - Ballard

Still a good D-core.

A consistent top 6 role for Hansen is a new thing for him this season. There are growing pains that go with that. I think this was the coach just saying that he needs to get his head back into it and create something. He has seemingly just been going through the motions the last few games since Roy was acquired. Almost like he is content with just watching Roy and Higgins. He needs to jump into the play in a more offensive sense again like he was a few weeks ago.

Gonna miss the Tanev of all trades. Good to hear that Hansen and Schneider are ok. I hope Higgins timeline means he's here before playoffs, and no delays - he tends to up his game in the post season.

Haha that's why they've won every game since he out some people need a reality check wtf think before say something. How is team defense screwed that's way over board so tanev is looked upon as the number one d in this league? Guess the coaches are morons put him 5 and 6 pairing. Shame on them, CDC posters know better

Good to get confirmation that Hansen was benched and not injured. Tough news on Tanev. The Canucks have a tendency to struggle whenever one of their RHDs are out for an extended period. Hopefully, he'll recover ahead of schedule and the Canucks will have their full group on the right side for the playoffs.

I didn't think Hansen was that bad last night but still not surprising that he was benched. When the game was close, AV chose to shorten up his bench and go with 3 lines. Weise had been a disaster all night with the offense just dying on his stick and having coughed up the puck repeatedly just inside the blue line in the O-zone, often leaving his linemates trapped and causing odd-man rushes. He pretty much killed the few opportunities that Roy and Hansen got going on that line. Also, Sestito probably wasn't going to see much of the ice in a close game (unless things got chippy and the Flames started taking liberties--which never happened). So it basically came down to a choice between Hansen and Lapierre.

Given the fact that the bottom-six struggled for most of the night in the faceoff circle, it made sense for AV to load-up one line with three centres (Roy, Lapierre, Ebbett) and try to stop the bleeding on the dot. Had to figure that one of the three might be able to win a draw (with two lefties and Lappy as the one righty available for "strong sides" draws). Also, since AV generally prefers to have righties and lefties play the wing on their natural sides, Ebbett was chosen to replace Weise on LW and, since AV probably liked Lapierre's play better than Hansen's that night, they simply swapped out righthand shots on RW. It ended up working and they scored the game winning goal on Lapierre's tally, so props to coach V for making that call.

I'd expect Hansen to use this benching as motivation and come back strong for the next game.

Exactly, this is only reason I'm baffled. Tanev doesn't suck at all but sounds like people think he's worth a raise say 4 mil plus d man

Hansen got benched!? I don't think that's ever happened before.

Hansen is one of our most consistent players. He may not light the lamp every game but his effort is there no matter what. Not sure why he'd be benched when Kassian was far more useless and silent.

AV confuses yet again

Kassian has changed his game to the point where he is trying to set up Kesler for everything and it almost paid off over 3 times against Calgary. He's not invisible... He's trying to fit into a role. Once they click and things start connecting that's going to be dangerous.

AV didn't "confuse yet again", either. Hansen had like 2 shots and looked half asleep out there last night. Sometimes even our better players need wake up calls.

- fans were raving about this line for the first three games.
- funny how some players never get benched, no matter how bad they play.

Kass has been great since his most recent call up, some definite chemistry between him and Kesler.

I think I'm reiterating what another poster said, but Hansen is being used in an offensive role now, he should be creating more plays and finishing chances, when frankly he's not doing it. That line shuffle led to a goal by the Ebbett-Lapierre-Roy line, so I'll take it.

Could be as simple as he had a bit of the flu, thought he could play through it, but couldn't quite make it all the way. Who knows what actually happens between players and coaches (i.e. hard to judge wihtout all the facts)?
