Vancouver: A team divided?
A lot was said early last week, just as things were falling apart in Vancouver, about how the team's dressing room was a group that lacked cohesion and that this was contributing to the team's decline.
Tom Benjamin wasn't a fan of the coverage at the time, and I'm guessing he won't like this, but a columnist (I've never heard of) for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel offers this tidbit on the Canucks' troubles:
Despite those assertions, one former Canucks player, who started the season in Vancouver, privately told a Canucks reporter the situation is 10 times worse than one might think.It's a strangely worded sentence, especially given that the entire rest of the piece is seemingly lifted from the Vancouver press. A former Canucks player said this to a Canucks reporter? And then... that reporter told the Sun-Sentinel fellow? I'm not sure.
If true, it'd be particularly interesting to know who, in fact, made the comment. How many players have even been shipped out of Vancouver this season? The list of candidates wouldn't be that long. In fact, as far as I can tell, only Steve McCarthy and Tomas Mojzis 'started' the season in Vancouver and moved on.
