Canucks News and Notes

Today in the Vancouver Sun, Todd Bertuzzi and his agent Pat Morris confirmed that the Canucks had made them an offer which they had rejected. But they also said they had sent the Canucks a counter offer, which the Canucks "were and still are mulling over". At the least, it's good to see the two sides talking.

Mike Keane talked to the media as well, once again voicing how he didn't want a two-way deal. His agent was called and asked about contract talks yesterday, and had this to say: "Nothing's done today. Call me tomorrow." So we could see Mike Keane officially signed to wear Canuck duds by today.

Also, if practice is any indication, the lineup for Thursday's game will be:

Naslund-Morrison-Bertuzzi
Arvedson-H. Sedin-D. Sedin
Cooke-Lindgren-Linden
May-Chubarov-Ruutu

Malik-Jovanovski
Sopel-Ohlund
Allen-Salo

Cloutier
Hedberg

Extras: Mike Keane, Jason King, Jiri Slegr

King sits? I hope not...if Crow isn't gonna play him why keep him around? I must say I'm surprised it's Lindgren with Cooke/Linden...Cooke and Chubarov have basically spent the last two seasons playing together on a line, and have some nice chemistry. I guess we will see tomorrow. And I have to work! :mad:

Hey! He stole my lines from ESPN NHL Hockey :( Lindgren was racking up the points for me on the third line.
