The 2012 NHL Trade deadline is nearing. Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges points out the pickings are interesting this year. Adrian Aucoin, Bryan Allen, Shea Weber, Travis Moen, Chad LaRose, and Tuomo Ruutu, Leaving would be Mason Raymond, and Keith Ballard. Maybe.

An underachiever is a person who fails to achieve his or her potential or does not do as well as expected. Overachievers are individuals who perform better or achieve more success than expected. Richard brakes down the Vancouver Canucks who fit in 2011. Version 1.0. Manny Malhotra, Keith Ballard, Jannick Hansen, Chris Higgins, Cory Schneider make the list.
