Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
As for the Sedins, there are differing opinions as to the degree to which they are bound to the Canucks.
Some say they love Vancouver and are determined to sign there. Some say the Aquilini family, which owns the team, despises Burke so much for his involvement in past lawsuits that they will want to be rid of any evidence that he once ran the franchise.
It’s suggested the Sedins are liked by the Vancouver hockey public, but not loved. A weak playoff performance this spring would open the door for their exit.
The likeliest scenario, it would seem, is that the twins only become available to the Leafs if the Canucks wave goodbye first.
Even then it might not happen. The Leafs, you see, are as wary as any team about taking on contractual commitments beyond next season that will put them in a bind if the cap falls.
