Canucks Still Talking Contract With Demitra

from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,

I’m still very good friends with Pavol and talk to him all the time,” (Geoff) Courtnall, a former Canuck, said Wednesday from Victoria. “I hadn’t seen him in a year and he came out before he went back to Slovakia.

“We only had one day and night together and he told me he loves coming to Vancouver. I told him if the Canucks are one of the teams that comes around July 1 [free agency], you should definitely think of playing there.”

Demitra has done just that.

Not only has the former Minnesota Wild forward stated that the Canucks top his wish list—a Slovakian newspaper has reported he’s close to signing a three-year, $12-million-US deal—general manager Mike Gillis has acknowledged contract dialogue with his former client.

The only problem might be term, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Gillis is trying to get Demitra to commit to two years instead of three.
