Ducks expect Parros to test free agency:

Right wing George Parros, whose pugilistic abilities and extensive community work made him a popular player with the Ducks for the last six seasons, is expected to test the free agent market when it opens on July 1.


Ducks GM Bob Murray told the Register that he made an offer to the enforcer but would not be any more specific beyond that. Parros, 32, finished a three-year deal worth $875,000 per season.


“Met with him on Friday,” Murray said. ”I’ve got a strong feeling he’s going to go to free agency and take a peek. We offered him a contract. I think he’s going to go to free agency, which is his right.”


Because of injuries and the change behind the bench from Randy Carlyle to Bruce Boudreau, Parros played in only 46 games last season — his fewest since appearing in only 32 with the Ducks in 2006-07 after coming over from Colorado in an early-season trade.


There figures to be a question of Parros’ role going forward as Boudreau wants to ice a fourth line that can play some significant minutes and signaled that when he often sat the winger down the stretch. Parros averaged just 6 minutes, 22 seconds last season and had one goal, three assists and 85 penalty minutes.


The Ducks have four notable unrestricted free agents in Parros, defenseman Sheldon Brookbank and winger Teemu Selanne. The club is far apart with Brookbank on a new deal and will readily work on re-signing Selanne once he officially announces his return for another season. Center Rod Pelley likely won’t be brought back.


“I have no promises with Brookie and George,” Murray said. “They have the right to do this.”

I rather lose with the Canucks, than win with any other team

http://en.wikipedia....i/George_Parros

College

Parros played four years at Princeton University, where he totaled 52 points and 119 PIM in 111 games. He was named team captain for his senior season in 2002–03. While at Princeton, Parros majored in economics and wrote his senior thesis on the West Coast longshoremen's labor dispute.[2] He was recently named the 4th smartest professional athlete by the Sporting News.[3]


Definitely falls into the Gillis-type player category having a good great education history.

Smart, community guy. Sounds like the kind of players Gillis has been going after. Pretty good at fighting too.

Probably wants over 1M, since he made 875k. I think 875 is what he's worth, I wouldn't pay over 1M.

Kassian - Lapierre - Parros

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Id prefer UFA players like Moen, Prust, Tootoo, Asham and Carkner that can take more of a regular shift then Parros but at the same time i wouldn't mind if Gillis did sign him.

That moustache alone deserves a contract.

We do not need a player that plays 3 mins a game. Waste of a roster space. I am not saying Parros is a bad guy, just saying that we do not need to sign a goon.

He should be in the top 5 Canuck depth signings. We need to have atleast 1 legit goon in the orginazation, he can help mentor Kassian (fighting wise) and can police the team so Kassian can focus more on becoming a powerforward instead of the enforcer.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind if MG decided to sign him. A great role player as well as a good fighter. Has plenty of size and strength too.

Parros - Volpatti - Kassian

* Why need a center when you got goons?
- Kassian could be a goon if he becomes a bust (has the frame).

Perfect line, Lapierre to piss someone off with his grin and wise cracks, Parros to pound the guy when he takes offense, Kassian to sit back and learn and take pointers on how to fight for the future

I think that after the SCF this year, LA and NJ have proved that it's important to be rolling all four lines and to have a line of hockey players rather than goons. Plus we have plenty of fighters and fourth line players already in our organization.

It wouldn't hurt to hve an enforcer in the organization. It's one factor the organization has failed to adress. Plus this takes pressure of kassian and bieksa to be the policeman of the team, let bieksa play his position and let kassian develop into a skilled power forward rather than a goon.

This is a guy i've wanted for a while, he's always on my fourth line in NHL. For grit, i'd look at him as a second option if we can't get Prust.

Do NOT get him. He's useless, we had Hordichuk to fill in that role and he didnt do much. Not to mention, Parros isnt even as good as Hordichuk when it comes to skating or hitting.

I wanted this guy last year when teams like LA and Ottawa decided that bullying the twins was the way to beat Vancouver.

This upcoming season, I want someone in the lineup that will go out and pound on both Duncan Keith and Dustin Brown. I doubt that either of those guys would go with big George, but it could be argued that neither of them would have dared messing with Hank or Dan had he been in the lineup.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Don't want him at all. Canucks have always stressed that they want to get tougher but have players that can actually play and handle 10+ minutes. Don't see Parros as a fit.

People should actually go back and watch some Canucks-Ducks games before deciding that Parros is a complete plug. I can recall several times when he was more than a handful for the Canucks' defense...

Kasian-Volpati-Paros?


Congratulations on misspelling every word in your post. And not including a centre on your 4th line.


Kassian-Lapierre-Parros (with Volpatti as the 13th forward) wouldn't be a bad 4th.

But where does Weise fit? I'll pass on Parros, thanks.
