Canucks and Beyond

According to Alex J. Walling at TSN, pretty much a done deal:
Newfoundland, which has plenty of Moose, is getting one more. The Manitoba Moose are coming to the Rock.
The Manitoba Moose will re-locate to the capital city of Newfoundland, St. John’s. [...]
The St. John’s Telegram says a tentative agreement is in place between Williams and True North Sports - the owners of the Manitoba Moose - and that True North has agreed to house its American League team at Mile One Centre for the 2011-12 AHL season.
The St. John’s Sports and Entertainment Centre is meeting to approve a deal between that body in charge of Mile One and the Williams group. The deal will be approved.
The Moose have been an excellent organization for the Vancouver Canucks to be associated with over the years, so this surely puts a lot of pressure on them to replace that relationship with something else as beneficial.
A fairly educated prediction—Sabres to Roch, Panthers to Portland, Canucks to Chicago, Tampa stays put.
Time I learn something about the Chicago Wolves, it seems. Any Wolves fans out there?
