Detroit Hockey Report:
The Canucks are Detroit's first real test of the season, Vancouver is essentially the same team finished one game shy of winning the Stanley Cup. They may have lost Christian Ehrhoff and Raffi Torez, but the solid play and progression of Chris Tanev, and addition of Marco Sturm shouldn't leave Canucks fans with too many sleepless nights. While the goalie tandem of Luongo and Schneider, mixed with the daunting task of not only containing the Sedins, but Ryan Kessler as well has probably kept a few Wings up at night.
