Vancouver sports blogger Aidan Chafe weighs in with his first Vancouver Canucks weekly three stars post. Here are the few noteworthy performers through six games of the Vancouver Canucks 2011-12 campaign. Alexander Edler, Christopher Higgins, and Maxim Lapierre are the guys with great performances in the last 7 days.
With the big trade made on Saturday by Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis the Canucks have made it clear that the plan will be for Chris Higgins to join David Booth and Ryan Kesler on an all-American second line. Higgins and Booth know each other from their days in Florida and the Canucks are hoping to capitalize on that chemistry.
