Canucks and Beyond

From Elliott Pap at the Vancouver Sun:
Gino Odjick is a friend of Vancouver Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini, but the former NHL enforcer insisted yesterday he is not being consulted in the search for a new general manager.
“It’s just a bad rumour,” said Odjick, whose name was bandied about on national TV as a member of Aquilini’s advisory committee. “I’m not involved at all. Yes, we’re friends, just friends, but he hasn’t called me to ask what he should do.”
That’s because I’ve just heard from a very reliable source that Gino Odjick is actually the Aquilinis’ true target for the position. If all goes as expected, Odjick may be named to the Vancouver Canucks GM post as early as Wednesday morning.
I wasn’t around to contribute but The Crazy Canucks put out two great episodes of the podcast this week.
First was a short, mobile episode where John and Rebecca tell entertaining stories of visiting a Canucks/NHL legends event; Bobby Hull sounds like a great guy. And the next episode recorded Thursday ran down everything in Canucks land.
Gotta say—hearing Gino Odjick’s voice on our own podcast saying “You’re listening to The Crazy Canucks!” is pretty damn cool.
Note: For my own audio efforts this week, I interviewed former Capital/Avalanche/Flyer player Keith Jones (a.k.a. “Jonesy”) for Kukla’s Korner. Nothing to do with the Canucks, but Jonesy had a rather unusual journey to the NHL and was a total pleasure to chat with.
