If you've seen a Vancouver Canucks game lately, you have undoubtedly noticed the obvious struggles of Henrik Sedin. He has been laboring all over the ice, clearly still dealing with the injury that forced him to end his ironman streak a few weeks ago. Well coach John Tortorella has seen it too and so he's shutting down Henrik for the final two games before the Olympic break kicks in. "He wants to play, but he's not as effective as we need him to be right now," Tortorella said. Considering he has gone pointless in the two games since returning from injury and the Canucks have one goal in those two losses, it's hard to disagree. The next question immediately becomes: will Henrik join twin brother Daniel Sedin and play for Team Sweden at the Olympics starting next week? If Tortorella had his way, then Henrik wouldn't.
