Demitra says Canucks are his number one choice

From TSN:
In an interview with Vancouver radio station CKNW, free agent forward 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]."
It looks as though Demitra will wait for "days or weeks" which probably means he'll wait and see if/when Mike Gillis signs Mats Sundin and then see how he fits on the team. Just a guess.
As much as this news is going to make Mr. Golbez a happy man, I am not all that thrilled. Demitra is injury prone and a gamble. Sure he's got the skill, but I don't want a soft skilled player. We just got rid of one of those!
Ah well. We'll see what happens. Demitra hasn't donned the Orca yet.

**UPDATE**

It has not been confirmed yet, but the Demitra deal is rumored to be a 3-year deal at $4 million per season. I hope this is wrong. 3 fricking years? I don't trust my Slovakian to English translators or this sources' reliability quite yet.
Regardless, thanks Antro for the link.
