His injury and time out of line up, http://canucks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=657790
will take us past the trade deadline. Interesting to see if this impacts what MG does. With Kesler out, Manny pushed out, Ebbett waived, we are short of centres, again. So Steve Pinizzotto has been recalled and will get a shot at playing centre on presumes, 4th line?
Hey, first time poster, big Malhotra fan.
Any chance he gets brought back?
All kinds of rumours today because he was at practice. Truth is he asked AV if AV needed any bodies for practice and AV said yes. Manny will not be back.
He spoke to the media today and basically said he feels he can still play. Would not comment when asked if he asked MG to trade him. Will do whatever he can to help the Canucks but is not ready to retire.
Bottom line sounds like he disagrees with MG's position but MG was firm, so much so that he would not trade him. I think Manny will try to land a contract in July and barring that he will retire.
But, no we won't see him ion a Canuck uniform again.
