3. It might be time to give Guillaume Brisebois a look
Once again, the Canucks defense struggled in the absence of top blueliner Edler. And unfortunately, it’s become pretty clear that Derrick Pouliot’s days as a Canuck are numbered.
That’s why I think it’s time to bring in Guillaume Brisebois. Stecher and Hutton shouldn’t be broken up, and Alex Biega has been a sparkplug for the Canucks, and in my opinion, doesn’t deserve to be scratched while Pouliot plays.
Brisebois has received extremely high praise from those who have followed his play in Utica, and from general manager Jim Benning himself. If the organization wants to get a better look at Brisebois, why not relieve a struggling Pouliot of his duties for a few games, and slot Brisebois into the lineup in his place?
Now might just be the best time for the Canucks to see what they really have in the young Brisebois.
The Canucks will look to stay in the playoff hunt when they face the San Jose Sharks this Monday, before hitting the road for their three-game tour of California.
