If Aquillini gets the hots for something, he has been known to become a wee bit obsessed.
That can always change everything..

Are we still paying Torts now that he's working again?
The only HW the Canucks need

Because his Columbus salary is less than his Vancouver salary was, Vancouver pays the difference between what the Canucks salary was and what Columbus pays him.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

As Topper pointed out, Aqua is only paying the difference between what Canucks were paying Torts ($2M-per)

... and whatever Columbus is paying him.

As for EXGMMG, the rumour was that there was a buyout clause in his contract ($1.6M?).

Regardless, Aqua is rolling in the green stuff and it ain't like this is a Babcockian contract. :wink:

When he wants something, he'll roll it out! Just gotta be careful what he may want :(

You're all wrong.....

1A Sedin-Sedin-Sutter
1B Lucic-Stamkos-Baertschi
3 Virtanen-Horvat-Hansen
4 Etem-Matthews-Dorsett
Gaunce

One of the "issues" that has been rumoured to be a factor for Stamkos in Tampa has been that he doesn't like to play wing, and that's where Cooper put him. I think anywhere he signs outside of The Bay is going to include some assurances that he is a centre.

I could see him agreeing to being the the guy on the LW on a PP unit with Henrik and Daniel though.....

Convert Matthews to defence. Problem solved. Shit, I should be coaching this team. 8-)

Right!

Swap Pedan and Matthews, everyone's happy.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
