Great news Stanton is back. With Hank being day to day and Santorelli week to week we are not in too bad shape heading into the Olympic break. If we can stay clear of more injuries we may have a decent line up after the Olympics. Oh I forgot Alberts.
Weber has been playing good for us, just not a tough guy. Too bad for him but if he plays well in the Olympics and whatever spot duty he gets the rest of the year I think he will earn himself an NHL contract somewhere next year.
How did Eberle or Hall or whoever slashed Richardson not get a call from the NHL?

Kinda funny really but at least he won't cost us any picks. Who knows. Maybe we can get him for the league minimum. If he scores one goal he will have one more than Burrows Didn't he play for Torts the cup year in Tampa?

#Canucks AGM Gilman - "Our intent is to sign him to a PTO, he can't play without signing one." #Prospal
Prospal will get some playing time on the farm, then he'll probably get some Canucks ice time if Hank's injury is long.
Torts - Prospal lol...
Remember when Vinny Prospal did that television interview from the bench at the St. Pete Times Forum after scoring two goals in February 2008 to beat the Canadiens?
Prospal, then on left wing for the Lightning, said it was the biggest moment in his NHL career, and he was pleased to "shove it up to somebody's butt."
The somebody was then-Lightning coach John Tortorella, who had taken Prospal off Vinny Lecavalier's line and drastically reduced Prospal's ice time. The Canadiens game marked his return to Lecavalier's line.
