Are the Canucks Relaxing Their Anti-Slovak Policy?

by Jes

If you look at the Vancouver Canucks opening night roster in a couple of months, you will notice exactly ZERO Slovaks on the roster. Given the Canucks' Anti-Slovak policy, and the fact that Vancouver hates Slovaks, in general, this really isn't Earth-exploding news.

What is shocking, however, is that the Canucks signed another Slovak prospect, Slovak-born Swiss Juraj Simek, and now have TWO in the organization.

Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice-President and General Manager Dave Nonis announced today that the Canucks have signed forward Juraj Simek. In keeping with club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Simek, 19, spent the 2006-07 with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League, registering 57 points (28-29-57) and 41 penalty minutes in 58 regular season games.
Sure, both Simek and Mario Bliznak are late-round picks, and both are longshots to make the NHL, but it's a start!!

Now, hopefully Nonis will get down and get Bulis under contract. WHAT'S TAKING SO FRICKIN' LONG!???!?!
