Bob McKenzie was on Vancouver’s TSN 1040 on Tuesday morning.
On his answer to the poll question of the day (Which free agent should the Canucks sign as a UFA – Milan Lucic, Loui Eriksson, or Steven Stamkos), and on if he sees Milan Lucic as a Canuck:
“I see him as an L.A. King. I’m not sure how exactly they’ll get it done, but I think they will get it done. I think they’ll find a way and I think that’s his primary focus right now, is to try and return to the L.A. Kings. I think the Kings have interest in that happening… So I’m going to bet that he doesn’t get to free agency this summer. We’ll see. Could be wrong.
“I think Loui Eriksson is a real good target for the Vancouver Canucks. I think we keep hearing that it might be a real good fit for Eriksson with the Sedins, if they go down that road, so I think that’s a realistic one.
“Stamkos – everybody and their brother is going to want Steven Stamkos if he becomes available. I’m not sure that he will, but if he does I wouldn’t necessarily automatically assume that Vancouver would be at the top of the list. That’s not to say that they wouldn’t get consideration if he gets that far.
“So if I’m having to answer your poll today, I guess I’d vote for Loui Eriksson.”
