After waiting 24 hours for a comment from our hosts on this signing, I felt it incumbent upon me to inquire, do we Canucks' fans now have a common cause with the Oilogosphere? Lowetide also has not mentioned it, which makes me wonder if Raffi no longer pulls at the heartstrings of Oiler fans. MC79 tweeted that he thought this is a good signing. Here and here are Jonathan Willis' spirited defense of Torres before he was traded. Here is a link from the Cannon the day he was traded to Buffalo, which also includes a link that says he turned down a 2 year @ 2 million per contract extension with Columbus. (Why wouldn't he?) The discussion in Canucks circles is that he might start the season in place of the injured Burrows with the Sedins, as well as take Bernier's place as the body in the paint on the PP. So, will some of you now find one thing to cheer during Canucks games?
