from Ben Kuzma of The White Towel,
Bieksa hasn’t lost any sleep over the latest rumoured scenario that would see him shipped to Washington for under-achieving Capitals forward Tomas Fleischmann. The upside for the Canucks would be getting something now for the pending unrestricted free agent. The downside is losing a veteran blueliner, risking another injury on the back end and leaving the Canucks with only Sami Salo as a right-hand shot. And there’s no guarantee how well Salo will perform when he eventually recovers from a ruptured Achilles suffered July 22. Add it all up and Bieksa is amused by it all.
“I think it’s hilarious,” said Bieksa. “It’s funny how you guys keep throwing my name out there and I’m still standing here. I don’t think I can comment on every rumour that’s out there, but certainly with his one, I’m still here today and that’s all I can say. Rumours are out there and I’ve had my fair share. I’ve learned to deal with it and it doesn’t bother me.”
