Canucks’ Owner With Positive Thoughts

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

“I told (Luongo) the best seven years for the Canucks have been the ones since he’s been here,” Aquilini said on Friday.

“I think what happened the last couple of years shocked him, but he’s a professional. He’ll come to camp. He’ll compete.

“Things will go well, we’ll win some games and he’s going to be fine. I don’t have a concern about that.”

And if that’s the way this season actually plays out, so much the better.

During the course of a wide-ranging interview on Friday, Aquilini answered most of the questions Canucks’ fans have been asking this offseason. True, he didn’t drop any bombshells, but he was as honest and forthright as could be expected.

In the one bit of news, Aquilini said the Sedin twins are close to signing contract extensions and doesn’t believe there any impediments to a new deal.

“They’re Canucks,” he said. “They’re what we want this team to be about.”

As for the rest of the team’s talking points, let’s take them one by one.
