The Heritage Classic, alongside the Winter Classic, is generally a treat for both fans and players. But the Vancouver Canucks and Daniel Sedin won't be looking at Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators with any particular fondness, as Sedin left the game with a left leg injury and will miss a chunk of time.

@LavoieRenaud:

Daniel Sedin (left leg) could be out for a minimum of 3 weeks. #canucks #tvasports

10:21 AM - 3 Mar 2014

@DarrenDreger

Daniel Sedin scheduled for an MRI today to determine extent of leg injury. Not believed to be knee related. No clear time frame for return.

10:39 AM - 3 Mar 2014

Any missed time is a huge loss for the Canucks. Sedin has scored 13 goals and has 40 total points this year, tied with his twin brother, Henrik, for the most on the team. It's been a bit of a down season for him, however—he tallied 40 points a season ago in just 47 games.

The Canucks are scrapping and clawing at the moment, hoping to earn a playoff berth but currently tied with the Dallas Stars and Winnipeg Jets for the eighth seed in the Western Conference with 66 points.

For a team that has battled through its fair share of injuries this season, losing Sedin really hurts. Henrik summed it up nicely, saying via Kevin Woodley of NHL.com, "It's been one of those years."

If Sedin does indeed miss up to three weeks, he could potentially be out for as many as 11 of the Canucks' 19 remaining games. It's pretty hard to imagine Vancouver earning that final spot if he misses more than half their remaining regular-season schedule.

Significant blow to the team. Just hope it's not any bigger than what we know and Dank can be healthy sooner than later. Was a bad looking play, knew off the bat he was out for a while so 3 weeks isn't too bad...but then again, big loss and might be the difference maker between playoffs or not and what course of action management takes with 1 day left till deadline.

I don't think this really changes anything for us. It's not like Daniel has been on fire as of late...

All the same, get well soon Daniel

Torts is a hired scapegoat. He'll be blamed for everything from losing, to boring games, to running Luongo out of town to the Sedins becoming injury-prone.

That's IF this inevitable decline was even foreseen by Canuck ownership and brass. "This is not the real Canucks." and "We'll be alright." may indicate otherwise, but the interpretation of those vague comments is subjective.

The injuries are going to be Gillis's excuse. The decline was not foreseen, still won't even be acknowledged, Gillis likes his team when healthy and the ownership believe him. We're doomed!!

And I guess Torts' excuse too.

But I think everyone must concur that the problems run far deeper than that.

You clearly don't know Torts. Injury excuses isn't in his vocabulary. He'd be the last guy to do that. Yea injuries are major factors that dictate how well a team can do but Torts doesn't like lining it up as an excuse.

Didn't hear directly, but the Team said he was using injuries as an excuse in a recent presser.

They also put in a bit of an actual quote clip. Although I don't remember what it was exactly Torts said.

Oh, and he also said that he's never been on a team with so many injuries. That i remember directly.

And?

There's your first problem.

CBC mentioned it in the broadcast too. Torts has thrown his hands up.

At least this removes the need to "save the season" by having to get a center back for Kesler. Now just take the best package of youth you can get.
