That's it. I've given up all hope of seeing the Canucks win the Cup any time soon.

I'm now making Sbisa's departure my personal Stanley Cup victory. It's really the only thing that is keeping me going as a Canucks fan.

I don't know when. I don't know how. But one day, Luca Sbisa will no longer be a Vancouver Canuck. And on that day, I will personally organize the parade. Heck, I already have the route planned out. It will go along Expo Boulevard to Smithe, then left on Beatty to Nelson. Over the Cambie St. Bridge, down to Marine Drive. Over the Arthur Lainge and finally along Grant McConachie Way...

It will be glorious.

Does this move spell the end of Eddie Lack in Vancouver? We'll explore after the jump.
