Canucks-Demitra deal may almost be done / Recchi signs with Tampa Bay

According to the almighty guessing Eklund, a deal between the Canucks and Pavol Demitra is close to being done. That doesn't overly excite me. But it could be worse. It could be Jan Bulis.
More on this as it develops.


I really don't get why more teams don't rush to sign The Wrecking Ball Mark Recchi. The guy still has speed and offensive talent, plus he has Cup experience. He scored 14 goals and 48 points in 72 games last season with the Thrashers. I just don't get why Gillis would pass on this guy. He's also a BC boy.
The Lightning signed the 40-year old to a 1-year $1.25 million deal, where he can make up to $1.5 million in incentives. Cheap price tag.

More on Tampa Bay tomorrow.

Demitra deal is done, according to this (for those who understand Slovak):

Apparently it's 3 years, $4 million per.

Can you understand it? I can't find a decent translator. It still seemed like the signing was "conditional" from my shitty translator
