And that could be it as well. Gainey and Co might not totally be aware of what kind of contract he'd signed....I guess we will know more later today.

I obviously prefer the CKAC version.....but knowing now that it wasn't just a 1 week visit for family reasons, you have to wonder why the AHL had a "suspended by the team" as what's happening with him....
