Canucks acquire some D!

In the span of 4 hours, Canucks GM Mike Gillis has gone from Mike "When's he going to do something to bolster our D???" Gillis to Mike "Wow, what are we going to do with all of these defensemen?" Gillis. The Canucks have acquired defensemen Brad Lukowich and Christian Erhoff from the San Jose Sharks for prospects Patrick White and Daniel Rahimi.

They've also finally made it official. Defenseman Mathieu Schneider is now a Canuck as well.

First, I never thought anything would come of Patrick White, so this is good news. And to now have three more NHL-caliber defensemen on the team? Should be interesting to see what Gillis does next. That's a bit of a glut, unless Lukowich goes down to the farm. But it's a much better problem to have than "what the hell are we going to do with Nolan Baumgartner suiting up regularly?"

And to top it all off, I'm listening to Pet Shop Boys' "Suburbia" right now. How can the afternoon get any better? At least until I go home, anyway.
