On Sami, Mo and Louie

It's a relatively quiet day on the news front today. I guess that's what happens when your team gets its ass handed to them by one of the worst teams in the league. Regardless, here is what's kickin' around the interweb:

Should the Canucks re-sign Sami Salo? For how much? (Jason Botchford, Vancouver Province)

"I was just talking to [Canucks assistant general manager] Steve Tambellini about Tommi Santala last week and Sami's name didn't come up once," said Bill Zito Jr., Salo's agent.

"We haven't talked about Sami's situation since back in October. The Canucks then made it clear it was something they wanted to address in the offseason to avoid having any kind of distractions. But they made it clear they have a lot of interest in re-signing him."
It may be time for me to add to the Canucks Chasing Records on my sidebar. (Gordon McIntyre, Vancouver Province)

It's a record players are almost sheepish about acknowledging, but any time you pass Captain Canuck it's noteworthy.

Brendan Morrison, in five games barring injury or a trade -- we hope not to jinx him on either front -- will tie Trevor Linden's mark for consecutive games as a Canuck.

Game 482 will happen in Anaheim on Feb. 20 for the Canucks centre, who with 485 consecutive games-played overall (eight with New Jersey and the rest since he joined the Canucks seven years ago in a trade for Alex Mogilny) is two behind current NHL ironman Karlis Skrastins of Colorado.
Is Luongo Hart-worthy? (Ed Willes, Vancouver Province)

This brings us around to the current season where you may have noticed the Canucks have a player, that would be Roberto Luongo, who merits consideration for the game's highest individual award. If you were going by the official definition, in fact -- "the player adjudged to be the most valuable to his team" -- it's hard to conceive of a more suitable candidate.
