    Higgins is responding to treatment and may join the Canucks on their current roadtrip. most of the posts i’ve read involving Vancouver seem to think they’re looking to pick up more defencemen but with the current group coming on track they’ve got 8 at the NHL level and Tanev headlining a capable group in their minor system. the Canucks might be better off picking up a young enforcer to keep other teams honest and Matt Kassian (former Giant)might be a guy worth looking at as he’s behind a couple of other enforcers in the Wild’s system, check out his work on youtube.
