Eve of Linden Day @ GM Place

Couple of notes and tidbits before Wednesday's special day for Vancouver Canucks fans who will help celebrate the career of one of the greatest players to ever play in the city....

* The Canucks will likely go with the same line-up as the one they iced against the Florida Panthers on Sunday. The one noteable change will see Curtis Sanford get the start in net over Cory Schneider

* The Edmonton Oilers will likely not have the same line-up as the one they had Tuesday night in a 9-2 loss at home against the Chicago Blackhawks. It was the most lop-sided loss the Oilers have suffered in the last 13 years.

* The ceremonies to celebrate the retirement of the #16 jersey belonging to Trevor Linden will begin at 6:00pm. I can honestly tell you I have no idea what the plans are for the hour-long ceremony, as far as who will be on hand or who might be speaking. I do know that the opening face off for the game will be taking place at 7:30pm.

* Linden will be meeting with the media at 10:00am on Wednesday. It's sure to be the start of a memorable day for one of the best players the Canucks have ever had, both on and off the ice.
