Dan Murphy tweeted a little while ago that Willie Mitchell has been training and skating for 18 days and is symptom-free of his nasty concussion. Murphy says that Mitchell has narrowed his choice destination from 12 interested teams down to 4. Vancouver is most likely in the mix. I am glad for Mitchell. For the Canucks to retain his services though, they are going to have to move more than just a Kevin Bieksa. On top of that, Mike Gillis still needs to shore up the Canucks' bottom 6.
At this point it seems to me that the team has already moved on from Mitchell after acquiring Dan Hamhuis and Keith Ballard. Both have no trade clauses in their contracts, with only Ballard having a limited movement clause, where he can be traded to 1 of 7 teams of his choice, according to CapGeek. Why do I bring that up? Because I'll take a healthy Mitchell over Ballard any day of the week. Crunch the numbers, kids, because apparently Gillis is chasing Arron Asham as well. What would you do?
