Has Demitra Signed with the Canucks?

via TSN:

...Pavol Demitra confirmed that the Canucks are his preferred destination and expects to sign with the team.

“I think there is a good chance,” Demitra said.”[Current Canucks GM Mike Gillis] used to be my agent for a long time. We are very good friends. I am very interested in playing for [the Canucks].”

Or perhaps he already is…

To take it even further, Kukla has a translation from the website of a Slovak tv station: “Pavol Demitra will play for Vancouver next 3 yrs. His contract is 4mil per season.”

And Canucks fans everywhere breath a sigh of relief… (“Someone who can score?!? What a cool idea!”)

$4 million a season seems a bit much, but hell, it’s not like the team doesn’t have the money to spare.

Update 3:45pm PT

Gain a Canuck, Lose a Canuck— Mike Weaver has signed with the Blues.
