Kukla's Korner Hockey

Linden, naturally, is doing what he can to help. To give Nonis as much cap flexibility as possible, Linden apparently is willing to take a cut from the $600,000 salary he made last year and play for a league-minimum $475,000, plus bonuses.
It will end the debate about Linden’s future and dissipate the public-relations cloud darkening a franchise looking for sunny weather as it prepares to relaunch its logo and uniform next week.
But the good news of Linden’s re-signing won’t explain what appeared, to any reasonable observer, to be Vigneault’s obvious reluctance taking back an experienced, versatile player who scored a dozen goals last season and led the Canucks in the playoffs.
