He does not have an attitude problem, and always speaks in terms of the team. I won't be upset if he's not resigned, but I'd rather see him collecting dust on the pine than anyone who still has AHL rights and can get more games in down there.
Basically, like everyone else on this team, he should have to earn a spot. If he doesn't beat anyone out of a spot in camp, he's exposed to the waiver draft and is either picked or goes to hFd to protect the other prospects.
He refused a conditioning stint, does not mean he can refuse to be reassigned.
Lou Lamoriello would have banished Dale Purinton once he refused the conditioning stint
