@SNETPacific

#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.

Good article. But it did say both Torts and Prospal were quit happy to be re-united. This smacks as a Torts involved move.

Burrows is a loser. He should be the buyout . Booth could be packaged with a pick for a 2 million dollar scrub who has a year left. Burrows is dead weight.

Luongo on the other may get a late pick.

Three more years of him at 4.5 ? He plays 20 minutes a game ffs with good players and is a drag on any line he plays on. he should be working it out on the 4th line atm and killing penalties. This "slump" dates back to halfway through last season.

Prospal decides to retire instead.

We look like a fucking joke right now.

Gotta wonder what the proud Italian Aquilinis are thinking right now...

Main stumbling block was the PTO with Utica. Not interested in auditioning for a look see with the big club.

Not really concerned he said no. My fear though is now MG does something really stupid. Play the course, ride it out and go at it n the off season.

He should pick it up when his foot is fully healed (2014/15 season).

Otherwise I wonder if MG can be like to Burrows, I know I said I wouldn't ask anyone to waive their NTC's while on the canucks, but yo, we in a tough bind, we need change and someone's gotta go bro.

Yeah, this season could pretty quickly go down in a ball of flames. No stupid trades please!
