There's a 7 min conference call with Parros, on his decision to sign with Florida on the Panthers website, which is worth a listen.

He mentioned he saw what Barch was able to do here (not simply being an enforcer, but actually getting to play some minutes) and sounded like he really wants to expand his role here, defensively. Also, I'm sure a big part of his role will be Huberdeau's bodyguard.

Parros seems like an awesome guy. I want to grow out my stache for games now.

Excellent point.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the signing, and I don't think he'll do anything to help the team defensively.

If you look at some of the fancy stats, what you see is a player who is among the league's worst possession players. The Ducks gave up a ton more shots when Parros was on the ice, he was one of the most protected players in the league (he started more than 60% of his shifts in the offensive zone, and ended more than half of them in the defensive zone), and he played against some of the opposition's weakest players. He took twice as many penalties as he drew, and he managed all of that while playing only 6 minutes or so a night. The only thing that Parros is good for is racking up penalty minutes.

I'm not disparaging the person--he may be a wonderful human being who is "good with kids." If you want someone who is a liability to the team but will throw his hands, he's your guy. But don't expect him to make the team better in any other way.

Just my opinion.

Saw Bobby Ryan tweet a message to Parros about missing him, etc.. Maybe we get in the Ryan sweepstakes in the next year or so?

I can't even tell if i'm joking anymore....

Don't be surprised if this may happen. Bobby & George are really good friends, I think your signing George puts you in the Bobby sweepstakes for sure.

I sure hope you're right on that! It just makes me a bit nervous on what we'd have to give up. Sources say to start, the Ducks would need a 2nd line Center. That would probably mean bye bye Weiss.

If I lived in South Florida I'd buy Panthers tickets now, that's how much I love this move.

How many games do you think he'll play? Will he be a regular?

Yeah he'll mostly be on our 4th. Maybe a scratch here and there depending on how he plays.

He's a lot like Rupp, except he's a better fighter and will fight much more often and anyone. His speed is terrible but he's very responsible defensively anyway. He should be a regular 12th forward and play every game, and instantly makes this a very tough team. Remember MacIntyre? I'd have liked him too but you get more with Parros for A decent price and he'll fight Mac anyway. A less skilled enforcer would be fine too but Parros is even better in that he can play every game.

Oh no, didn't Ryan say Dineen was his favorite coach to play under, too? This just adds more fuel to the fire.

with the speculation that ryan may be traded, ive been dying for us to trade for him. ducks are my 2nd favorite team and hes my favorite player on the team. if they want to start w/ a 2nd line center then someone like weiss/bjugstad (i know he has no nhl experience and hes playing in college this season) may have to go the other way. i think weiss/bjugstad/kulikov + bergenheim (bergy, selanne, and koivu, the all finish line, 2 of which would be from helsinki, and they need LWers), or something around that. ryan/huberdeau/fleischmann/versteeg as the top 4 wingers...my goodness haha. would really hurt to lose weiss tho.

and i think parros will mostly play on the 4th, may get a scratch here and there and have skille fill in. and a bodyguard for the younger players like hubderdeau. love how we got him, he'll be an instant fan favorite.

Ducks would definitely require Bjugstad as the deal breaker [and a few other pieces], there might be a way to not put Weiss in it though, and if that's the case, then it might not be too bad to pull the trigger.

Then Ryan won't be traded here, simple as that. I don't think I'd pull the trigger either unless we're really in trouble, but there's no way Ryan's going for less than Bjudstad and draft picks.

btw the slashes meant "or", not "and". no way we'd do bjugstad and weiss. it'd be one of them and then add from there, probably bergenheim since they look weak at lw.

Parros has been on the negotiating committee for the union since the start of the lockout so I doubt he was gonna play overseas anyway. Just an FYI.

Just saw that Parros was one of the players at the meeting with the owners yesterday. Thought that was interesting. If I wouldve guessed at a Panther being there I wouldve gone with Soupy.

How sad is this lockout. I love hockey, but feel totally disconnected from it at this point. Im disappointed in both sides. Reinforces in my mind that the NHL is a second rate organization. Too bad because it could be so much more.

Parros has been one of the main NHLPA reps from the start. Weaver is our official team union rep.

Started following him on twitter after we picked him up and I have to say that I'm really excited to have Mr. Parros on our team. He's smart and an pretty entertaining.
