It’s early August, and the NHL is about as far off of the radar as it could possibly be. Free agency has cooled down, the draft is far in the rear-view mirror and the fact of the matter is that there aren’t a lot of stories to cover (side point: how stupid is it that the draft and free agency both get jammed together at the end of June/very start of July?).

The Vancouver Canucks announced today that they have re-signed Kyle Wellwood to a 1-year, $1.2m deal. With the top six forwards effectively set, this creates a log jam of players on the third line.

Something's gotta give... And soon.
