Here's a tweet from Columbus GM Scott Howson...
"Very pleased to tell you all that we have signed Vinnie Prospal. He is a top 6 forward to help replace Kristian Huselius."
...glad to see Vinny get another chance in the NHL. With the Rangers re-signing Feds and bringing in Rupp there was really no room left for Prospal.
...he did an outstanding job working with the kids and brought a youthful enthusiasm to the game that was infectious with the team and the fans.
...btw could you ever imagine Sather on Twitter?
Here's a pretty good goal celebration from Prospal...
Thanks for your fantastic enthusiasm and effort Vinny!
Columbus is a great fit for prospal. The blue jackets will take the coyotes playoff spot if mason tends well...
Good for Vinny!
Truth is, part of me hates to see him play for another team but there wasn't a spot left for him after the Richards, Fedotenko, and Rupp signings. I know he'd rather keep playing than end it now so I can only be happy for him. I hope he'll have a healthy season and do well in Columbus.
All the best to Vinny and his family!
Thanks for everything!
Thanks to Vinny for putting in 100% every night and making a meaningful contribution on a team where everything he brought was needed. IMO, he over-achieved (when healthy) during his time in blue and I will always respect him for that.
Top 6 forward though? We will see about that.
If Sather even knew how to use twitter... He would tweet once a year maybe.
Glad to see him get a nice deal and glad to see him go over to the west, not a guy I would want to root against too often, barring a Rangers/Blue Jackets Final of course.
