08:19 AM ET 01.17 | The absences of Ryan Kesler and David Booth are more than just a lineup issue in Vancouver. The question surrounding the Vancouver Canucks has for some months been, is the window closing on this group's Stanley Cup aspirations?Any more injuries and the queries will shift to, should the Canucks even be in the Stanley Cup conversation anymore? ... Inside the Northwest Division, Minnesota is a tougher foe this season, and Edmonton will likely take a few points from the Canucks that, over the past many seasons, have been a lock for Vancouver. It is the team in blue and green that is the problem for Canucks fans right now, however. A team that was supposed to be more than a one-year wonder Cup contender.

Damning indictment of the ridiculous shoulder pads and other pieces of body armor they wear nowadays.
