MillarWithASave posted it over on the panthers board, but I decided to move it here as well. Its certainly big time news if true, and would all but crush any leverage the Canucks have. If its true, the Canucks have two options assuming the panthers are interested:

1) Trade him to Fla for w/e they are willing to pay.
2) Call his bluff, and hold onto him, which prevents them from spending that money elsewhere.
To be honest everyone should avoid whatever Steve Simmons says. He writes for the Sun for crying out loud. I'd be stunned if he had any inside info. This is all his opinion and what he thinks is going on.
