2006 - Vancouver got its goalie the future when the Canucks sent Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan Allen and Alex Auld to the Panthers for Lukas Krajicek, a sixth-round draft pick (Sergei Shirokov) and Roberto Luongo.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
