Canucks: Linden update and new logo/jersey update

It now appears that it is up to Dave Nonis as to whether or not Trevor Linden will play for the Canucks this season. From Sportsnet:

Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault told CanWest News Service yesterday that a meeting with Linden earlier this week "went really, really well" and indicated that it is now up to general manager Dave Nonis to make the final decision and get Linden's signature on a contract.
The Tuesday-evening meeting between Vigneault and Linden was considered the biggest hurdle facing the 37-year-old winger's return for a 19th NHL campaign, with speculation the coach and player might not see eye-to-eye on a role for the coming season.

Well that's positive. The odds are good now.

The Crazy kids at the Canucks board continue to try find leaked versions of the new Canucks jersey and/or logo. Here is the latest color concept of the logo:

Like it? Love it? Don't want no more of it?

If Linden and Forsberg are wearing it, I like it :-)

I think Linden is going to play one more.

The only pickle I have with this whole Forsberg to Vancouver is that it is an overblown story because Naslund flapped his gums on the radio. I'm sure he's asked Forsberg to play in Vancouver many times before.
Maybe this time Markus is using the "C'mon Peter, it's our last year in the NHL...let's play together" line.
