Canucks rumor

And speaking of people who are not far off from the previous post.....
This from Hockeybuzz today:

Update: The Canucks are talking to a team from the east regarding a "serious power forward." (e4)

My guess: Anson Carter (e4). Not.
Take that with a massive grain of salt, even though it wouldn't hurt to have a bigger, more skilled power forward than Taylor Pyatt out there. To me, this is a bit premature still, as training camp is still ongoing.
Do the Canucks really need another top 6 forward addition? Or does the rest of the team just have to step it up offensively? Remember, Bryan Smolinski has not really been replaced yet. Then again, it wouldn't take much to replace Smoke would it?
Vigneault rewards forwards who excel with more icetime and promotions, even if it is a Jeff Cowan. That system works well. Maybe that concept squashes any real chance of Nonis making a deal for a top 6 forward.

Thoughts?

Pyatt with the Sedins wasn't all that bad, you know.

I'm much more concerned about who will play with Mo and Nazzy.

Kesler? Isbister? Jaffray? Linden???

That was the one hole Nonis should have filled during the off-season, and he didn't. If I were a pentecostal, I'd be speakin' in tongues for Jaffray and Kesler to be endowed with some kind of miracle goal-scoring power. Luongo is going to need to be every bit as good as he was last season, or else "we be f*cked"

I got a good feeling about Kesler this year.

Not knocking Pyatt too much. But he was shuffled around because of inconsistency.

Is the pre-season game against the Ducks on television?

Hehehehe... Anson Carter is trying out for the Oilers. There are no words.
