The Canucks were also in on Del Zotto right up until this morning. Don't think think they are done wheeling and dealing.

7:56 PM - 5 Aug 2014
MDZ signs with the Flyers but interesting that the Canucks were allegedly "in" on him. Image

I don't think they were interested in him in any serious way. His agent, at one point, emphatically said he would not be signing with Vancouver which tells me he either had no interest or the Canucks made a low ball offer which pissed his agent off. I think if Benning wanted him badly enough he would have made it work.

I really do think, barring a gift coming their way, they are done until camp. They still have good cap space to pick up a player on waivers if a good one falls their way or make a trade or two if they want to clear out a veteran or if a trade proposal makes sense. I think for now it's just let's get to camp and let the evaluation begin for real.
The only HW the Canucks need

Uhhhhhh, Eklund posted it on twitter. He's an accredited member of the sports media. I mean even Sportsnet had him on-air in one of their TDL specials. BTW, I think it was also the same year they brought in some, balloons, hot chicks and had an on-air pizza party .......... Image

In the same nightmare that Pierre McGuire is an NHL coach and Cody Hodgson is a #1 centre.

Oh, please stop being a pretentious fucking whiner like you usually are .............

Eklund on twitter is followed by the real @IslandNucks on twitter and, uhhhhhh, the three top MSM insiders in hockey Bob McKenzie, Pierre Lebrun and Darren Dreger and various NHL teams, including the Canucks.

Don't confuse him with someone like @HockeyyInsiderr ................... :evil:

Can you imagine going to an alcohol-free pizza party with Eklund AND the always-hilarious Donald Taylor?

Fuck that would be sweet.

No kidding. "DRRRRRRRPPP Toronto has interest in everyone (E80)!!" Click my shit so I get ad money! I'm a real journalist, but I can't show you my real name because I'm an INSIDR. What a complete goof. The shotgun method at its finest.

Anyone who thinks Eklund is a reliable source is a fucking idiot.

Well, I would say a much bigger fucking idiot would be someone who somehow goes the low hanging fruit route and "finds" a 2015 NHL draft projection from a google search from a "nobody" and presents it to others here on canucks corner as a credible source ..... would ya know anything about that? 8-)

Not sure on PM, but I recall plenty of "elite shot", "elite level passing" and Adam Oates comparisons when CoHo was in a Canuck uniform. I also recall being the person laughing loudest at those praises.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
