Wednesday with the Canucks -- Wellwood is Your Salvation

With Curtis Sanford still unsigned to warm Luongo’s bench for next season, Ben Kuzma at the Province (via the National Post) is pondering Alex Auld returning to Vancouver. (We did a poll on this subject a few weeks ago—60% of you liked the idea.)

Speaking of surplus goalies, Cory Schneiderhas been blogging the last few days, including the revelation that he doesn’t have a big sister—he just lied about that. (That’s part of what they call “team building” in Vancouver these days. Geez, I love it when players blog.)

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review thinks there’s something to the rumors of Hossa-or-Malone-to-Vancouver. Maybe it’s possible, maybe it’s not—all I know for sure is that every UFA rumor that comes along is going to feature the Canucks as a contender in the near future. It’s not like the team can pull a trade to save its life right now… (One comment on FanNation: “The idea of getting Hossa there…well that just sounds like a lot of Maloney to me.” Cute.)

But for all the things to be concerned about, at least the Canucks’ owner isn’t one of those dudes that might be better suited to prison stripes. Though perhaps one day…

A journalist/writer friend sends us this comment today for your consideration:

“I’m telling you, as long as Aquilini owns the team (and he’s still a slumlord here btw) we will remain in the dark ages. He is loathed in local business circles, and it would seem, he’s hired a guy who’s likewise in the NHL.”

Canucks fandom is a special thing, isn’t it? Here’s a slogan idea: No One’s Been Arrested Today.

Catchy. I can dance to that.
