Bruce Boudreau showed a completely new mix today at practice and it's cause for discussion since the 1st line is completely remodelled.

The Canucks' top duo since the season began is matched to J.T. Miller which will definitely create sparkles. The Mikheyev, Horvat and Boeser line was left untouched and understandably so. Garland, Dries and Lock were the third unit while Studnicka, Lazar and Joshua completed the 12 forward core.

The defensive pairings showed Stillman and Burroughs as the extras. Bear was matched to Hughes again, OEL and Myers completed by Dermott and Schenn.




Moving Miller back to the wing after he's played a few game down the middle had an old quote from Rutherford coming up again:

‘'Miller would have won the Selke if Bruce didn't move him to the wing‘'


Miller will definitely not be a Selke Candidate this year, but he improves his defensive game it'll certainly help the Canucks' game.

The Canucks will play the defending Stanley Cup winner tomorrow, is this line shake up enough for the Nucks to bounce back at home?
