congrats to the Stache!

A reason to tune in and watch a few of Florida's games now.

I felt I had to come post this as I lold when I saw it..

http://www.mtv3.fi/urheilu/jaakiekko...tavat-maisemaa

the headline says "best mustache in the NHL gets a change of scenery"

other signings so far that have their own story:
Parenteau
Whitney
Kuba
Corvo

But the main story is the signing of the mustache.. I wonder if it was the 'stache that did the actual signing

Good signing

I guess being a panther fan can't help but lower your standards. Maybe you can give the gators a break and not clear them from the parade route just yet.

Later 'Stache. As much as I hate Anaheim, I've always respected you. Class act all around. That man is going to be handing out mustache rides to co-eds like free candy out there!

They maybe were. I think it was reported that 3 teams were on to his services at some point.

Just a summary of parros.

He works hard, good to the fans, by all accounts a good locker room guy and team mate. He definitelly would not be as 'famous' had it not been for the stache and long hair throwback look, but that's kinda why his image is bigger than the person.

He's also a very bright, smart dude, by all accounts.

I'll miss him, he was an awesome guy.

But as a player, there's really not much to miss.

This. Parros is a serviceable hockey player for an enforcer and can protect his teammates. The Oilers definitely could have used him. However, it seems that George likes the beach and the sun, since he's played in all 3 of LA, Anaheim, and now Florida.

This. Parros' best feature these days other than his class and charitable efforts, are that he doesn't play BAD hockey. In his short minutes he won't make dumb plays or turnovers, but he won't do anything good either

Sens should have signed him.

Paul Maclean's stache + George Parros' stache = epic combination.

Not sure his wife would approve of that, plus he has his hands full with the twins.
