So the big question is “Is Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich buying the Canucks?”
The Canucks say no.
Rumors in Russia are that he is. But rumors out of Russia are always pretty crazy. Their press can get a little, um, creative.
People are speculating that if Abramovich buys the team, it could be all Russian. I’m not sure how that would work. I guess they’d have to fire a lot of current Canucks. It seems kind of hard to me.
