The Tom "top-sixsito" Sestito era of Vancouver Canucks hockey is over. Where will the moral victories come from now?
On Monday, the Canucks announced that Sestito will no longer be on the Utica Comets' roster. The club will look to facilitate a trade for the designated enforcer, who has already cleared waivers this season.

The Vancouver Canucks shutout the New York Islanders, but lost Ryan Miller to injury in the process on Sunday night. Click past the jump for our NHL94 Infographic recap of the historic victory, the Canucks' final game at Nassau Coliseum...

For the final time in franchise history, the Vancouver Canucks visited the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Sunday night to face the New York Islanders.
The Coliseum, a concrete blister in the middle of a parking lot in Uniondale, NY, was the site of Vancouver's losses in Game 1 (an instant classic overtime thriller) and Game 2 of the 1982 Stanley Cup Final - a series in which the overmatched Canucks were ultimately swept by the dynastic Islanders of the early 80s.
So Vancouver's 4-0 victory over New York's other, other team on Sunday brought with it a sense of closure, a spot of karmic payback. The reverse sweep as it were. On the other hand, the club lost Ryan Miller to injury, and any crowing about karma at the moment seems misguided in the extreme.

Vancouver Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller sustained an apparent lower-body injury when he was barrelled into by teammate Jannik Hansen early in the second period of Sunday night's game against the New York Islanders.
Miller was in apparent pain immediately, but gamely made one more stop before the referees blew the whistle. After remaining prone on the ice while being attended to by team doctors for a couple of minutes, Miller left the ice slowly, but under his own power. He was replaced by Eddie Lack.
