Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
If you believe the reports the Vancouver Canucks have contacted the agents for Dave Bolland and goalies Jonas Hiller and Ryan Miller, you have to wonder what the green brain trust of the Vancouver Canucks is thinking these days.
Not sure whether it escaped their notice, but only the Buffalo Sabres scored fewer goals than their team last year — and if the goal is to produce uptempo, entertaining hockey, perhaps looking at goaltenders and an overpriced checking centre with a concussion history might not be the highest priority.
Perhaps marshalling the forces toward producing some offence by way of getting some top-six talent and leaving the coach to rehab the lame performance of the back end last year might be a more efficient way to go....
What Benning, Desjardins and perhaps even Trevor Linden don’t seem to be fully grasping here, if this is in fact the direction they intend to take this team, is how genuinely boring the games were last year.
