I'll look forward to the announcement but if doesn't come off, I can be just as content with the #46 and Grenier for Rucinsky.
Not with CBA about to blow up... If he were to go unsigned into the summer, he'd probably end up playing in the AHL next year with a minor league contract.... (Assuming the NHL goes into lockout).
