Love your story Garth! What a great read.. As I'm a single father of an 11yr. old Canucks fan also, I'm so glad that it worked out for your son like that. Yes, they're a pretty special team now that G.M. Mike Gillis has taken over. One of the most important things he looks for in a player, is their personality.. What kind of person they are on the inside. They can be a great player, but if they don't have it going on upstairs, then he doesn't bother trying to sign them. Take care, (I like your team also) and good luck in the playoffs! (until the west final, that is)! ;o) Dave. Chilliwack, B.C.
