Canucks officially sign Pavol Demitra

Things are starting to turn around for the Vancouver Canucks, who were rejected by Mats Sundin and his agent J.P. Barry earlier this week worse than Screech on Saved by the Bell.

Demitra is a 9-time 20 goal scorer who will look very nice on a Power Play unit alongside the crafty Sedin Twins.

The Jets have gone from a team with seven injured players to two (Appleton & Gustafsson) but that number grew to three when defenceman Dylan DeMelo was added to the list.
