Niedermayer to Vancouver?

Spectors and the Toronto Star are linking all-star defenseman Scott Niedermayer to the Vancouver Canucks.Niedermayer, 30, may sign a one-year deal with the Devils to make him availabe as a UFA the following season. Uncertainty over the lock out may prevent the Devils from giving Niedermayer a long term deal.

There is also the possibility that a new CBA would reduce the UFA age, allowing Niedermayer to sign where ever he pleases.

The article suggests that the Cranbrook native would love to return home and play for the Canucks.

If thats the case then this is great news for the Canucks, giving them 3 superstar defenseman and bad news for the Devils, who would lose their acting captiain.
