Jim Fox live chat

At Canucks practice today, the chatter was all about the fact that Daniel Sedin did not practice. Sedin, who missed the final nine regular-season games because of a concussion, practiced yesterday and seemed on track to play. The team said that Sedin has not suffered a setback. Will Sedin be held out tomorrow, or is it playoff gamesmanship. Asked about Sedin’s non-practice status, Darryl Sutter left little doubt about his opinion…

SUTTER: “Them guys are playing games with us, right? We shouldn’t have had Carter practice with us. Then I could have said, `Oh, he’s not traveling.’ I try to be honest, or not say nothing. Hey, that’s a part of it.’’

Question: So you’re planning on seeing him in the lineup tomorrow?

SUTTER: “Absolutely. Sedin, Sedin, Burrows. Absolutely.’’
