Canucks News Updates Today

Just listened to an interview with Brian Smolinski on TSN. He just arrived in St. Louis and was talking to them from the airport. His comments: "I'm very excited.... emotions run through you very quickly... it never hits you too the end. Otherwise I'm ecstatic, excited to go to an excellent team with a chance to make a long run of it..." I'm not sure if he's playing tonight, but I suppose it's likely. More news on that and other updates later. Update 9:15am PT: TSN's Scott Cullen has just posted online a short breakdown of the Canucks trades yesterday. Update 11:15am PT Graham Kerr at the Globe & Mail also has a breakdown online about the new acquisitions. "The Vancouver Canucks not only acquired needed depth in trading for Bryan Smolinski and Brent Sopel on Monday, they got veterans that were plus players on National Hockey League teams with losing records." Update 11:27am PT Blast from the past... Todd Bertuzzi has been traded to the Red Wings. Will he and Chelios now be BFF? Wow... As The Stomach Turns. Update 11:58am PT Marc Chouinard cleared waivers and is now assigned to the Manitoba Moose. Update 12:02pm PT Brad Moran re-assigned to the Moose.
