I have his autograph.
He went to my sister's restaurant.

I felt I should share that because I have nothing else to say because I don't think we're ever seeing the guy again.

He should play regardless of whether his PCS is still bothering him.

Some dude from "24" season two was still hunting down terrorists after severe radiation poisoning.

You guys don't think that he'll be re-signed next year?

Only if he comes cheap.

Guess it all comes down to how badly he wants to stay on the team he grew up with.

What is considered cheap? 3.5m isn't that bad

Well, not cheap as in less than 1 million or some delusional price, but cheaper than 3.5. Signing him with the unknown of whether he can play without getting another concussion is risky business, as we already have one injury prone d-man on our blueline, and that's one too many imo.

I think Gillis will probably try to get someone who he knows can play a full season (well, to an extent, as injuries can happen anytime, anywhere).

The loss of Willie Mitchell is an absolutely massive blow to the Canucks going into the playoffs. He is one of the best pure shut-down defensemen in the league when he's on his game.

I sure hope he can make a recovery in time for a later round in the playoffs, because if not, I think his days in Vancouver are numbered.

Taken from the injury thread, this poster believes Mitchell will be back sooner than later:

Emergency call-up after Salo went down.

Seriously though, he looks pretty haggard in that shot. Hopefully it was just a bad hair day or something.

Ummmmmmm.

Anyway, Mitchell back at any point in the 1st round would be a huge boost. This guy is a warrior.

I would consider 2.5 million to be cheap for Willie. Anything over that and I think Gillis probably goes in another direction.

I'd be willing to go to 3 million, but only for 1 year.
Pre-concussion I would have offered him 2 more years @ same price, but that kind of injury is tricky to ascertain.
If he's out all playoffs I think we may have seen his last game as a Canuck. We'll see how it all plays out. It would be incredible if he makes it back soon.
Anybody have an update?
