The Vancouver Canucks have reportedly signed forward Ryan Johnson. According to Team 1040, the Canucks inked the 10-year veteran to a two-year, $2.4 million contract.
Johnson spent the past six seasons with the St. Louis Blues after being claimed off waivers from the Florida Panthers, the team that drafted him.
More on that later, presumably. Meanwhile, Mike Gillis’s response to the $20 million offered to Mats Sundin today:
“We don’t [have a timetable for an answer]. Mats has gone to bed in Sweden,” said Gillis. “I know he’s thinking about things. From all indications he was very, very pleased that we stepped up and did what we did. We’re hoping to have some more dialogue in the morning and get a positive response.”
$20 million. What’s not to be pleased about?
