02:02 PM ET 04.30 | The San Jose Sharks will be without a key component of their defense for Game 1 of their series against the tough Vancouver Canucks. Sharks defenseman Jason Demers will not be in the lineup for the Sharks when they open up their best-of-seven series at Rogers Arena on Wednesday. Demers -- who is still recovering from a sprained ankle he suffered April 18 against the Minnesota Wild -- did not practice on Monday. The team will go with either Scott Hannan or rookie Matt Tennyson in his place. Sharks coach Todd McLellan suggested Demers may return for Game 2. Demers has produced a goal and two assists in 22 games for San Jose this season.

As a fan who saw rookie 'D' men play most of the season I would go with Scott Hannan.
