Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,
If you’re a Vancouver Canucks fan and disappointed with the indignity of losing a beauty pageant to Edmonton, take solace.
At least the Canucks have lots of money to spend. They just might not have anyone they are willing to spend it on….
So off to free agency, where some followers are hopeful White Rock’s Jason Garrison would be willing to give the Canucks a hometown discount. If not, is Vancouver really ready to make him their highest-paid defenceman? Has it really come to that? Are the Canucks desperate enough to pay Garrison the more than $5 million a year he’s been eyeing?
It hasn’t been the Canucks tact. At least, not often….
But the Canucks have to kick the tires on Shane Doan, a free agent who is just about exactly what their top-six has been missing during the past two years. The team has the money to make a run at him, even if most believe he wants to keep playing in Phoenix.
