      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension.

Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth

[Report] Ducks expect Parros to test free agency

Recommended Posts

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.”

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.

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.

Canucks defenetly need to make a stab at him. we still don't have an enforcer he is perfect.

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).
