Quick Links - 10/18/2007

The Canucks had yesterday off so things are relatively-quiet this morning. Well, with the exception of a couple of questions:

Is Bieksa hurt (Ben Kuzma, Vancouver Province)?

Kevin Bieksa will admit his decisions with the puck have been as suspect as his positioning without it.

Bieksa won't admit that he's probably playing hurt.

"I've got a few nicks and bruises, but I'm cleared to play," said the Vancouver Canucks defenceman, who's a minus-4 with 16 penalty minutes after six games.
Is Isbister the answer (Iain MacIntyre, Vancouver Sun)?

You needed a keen eye or the official scoresheet to know that Isbister had even played two games before Monday. But against the San Jose Sharks, Isbister emerged from the press box and was one of the better Canuck forwards.

That would mean he had three memorable shifts: Two when he used his size and strength to draw penalties, and one when he lasered a shot off the post two seconds before Pyatt shinned in the rebound.

On the basis of that performance, Isbister is practising this week alongside Brendan Morrison and Markus Naslund and is expected to start on the second line - and first power-play unit with Daniel and Henrik - for Friday's home game against the Los Angeles Kings.
My short answers to the two? Most likely and I hope so.

You surely do not hope that Bieksa is hurt :) Just a typo, I guess... ;)
