When reached for comment, the Canucks confirmed that they've received "a number of" letters about Bieksa.
The club does not consider the sender a threat, though a comprehensive background check was completed by security.
It certainly begs the question, what would McDonald do if the Canucks actually did trade Bieksa?
"Probably have a little party," he says. "It would just really make all my hard work worthwhile."
And would he turn his attention to another member of the Canucks?
"Oh, well, that's tough to say. I've just been so focused on Bieksa, I haven't really been watching anyone else too closely," he admits. "Maybe Demitra. They should probably get rid of that guy."
