The fourth in a special summer series, author Patrick Johnston will write whatever comes to mind about a random Canucks hero. What is a hero? Patrick's criteria is super secret, but maybe, just maybe, if you pay close attention, you'll figure it out

Alex Mogilny, in my memory, is one of the greatest Vancouver Canucks ever. In reality, looking at the numbers, it's hard to say. 308 points in 312 games in a Canucks jersey, a third of which came in his only electric season. As skill goes, he was incredible, there are few competitors in answering the question: 'who would you like to have the puck on his stick at *that* moment for the Canucks?' What is Alex Mogilny an example of? He's a reminder of where this team was, the vortex they were in, of what can happen to a talent when the walls are crumbling all around.

Ex-Flame and Leaf enforcer Wade Belak was reportedly found dead in his Toronto condo this afternoon. The 35-year old recently retired from hockey.

More to come as details emerge. For now, sincere condolences to Belak's friends and family.
