Found April 30, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
Roberto Luongo is in the market, and some have already decided that he’s going to the Maple Leafs. Or maybe he’s going to the Oilers, or maybe the Lightning. I could keep going, but there’s the rest of the league to list, and that would take awhile. For a number of fans, writers, and analysts who are looking in from the outside of the Stanley Cup playoffs, this is the best recreation available. There’s a lot of “could we? should we? would we?” running loose across the ink and phosphors. It’s cheap, it’s fun, and hey, you  don’t have to cut the check!Continue reading "Why Luongo, without your no-trade clause, you’re beautiful!"

2012 offseason: Vancouver Canucks prospect watch Nicklas Jensen

Canucks need to take a good hard look at young Dane The modern salary cap era in the NHL with its tight restrictions on spending has altered several aspects of team building.

But the Vancouver forward has obviously spent enough time with his Vancouver teammates...

Is Alain Vigneault done?

With chaos in Canuckland, between Aqualini reportedly being fire-nonis mad and Gillis scrambling for answers, is AV the easy scapegoat? Does AV himself see an opportunity with the vacant coaching position in Montreal? It's starting to feel like a summer of change, does that include the coach? If it does, is that a good idea?

2012 draft talk

aka the next time Vancouver has a stake in NHL proceedings... there's some kid projected in the second round named Henrik Samuelsson, can the Canucks possibly pass him up? For the first round Adam Pelech? Dalton Thrower? Branden Gance?

It might be time for Patrick Marleau to finally get a fresh start, for the Sharks’ sake

Everyone has a theory about what’s going to happen with Roberto Luongo this summer, and the Edmonton Journal’s Jim Matheson is no exception, but he chose to lead off his Hockey World column with a suggestion that the San Jose Sharks can indeed “shake up” their roster despite their contractual obligations to their core players by perhaps finally trading Patrick Marleau: know...
