He led the Monarchs to a deep playoff run and provided the youngsters playing there with valuable playoff experience.
Glad Dean could find him a home with another NHL organization since he was no longer in our plans.
it should also be noted that while everyone and their mother was so quick to bash Dean Lombardi for his treatment of players... which was really only one player (Lubomir Vinsovsky)... which came via an interview with a foreign news agency, was never seen elsewhere unless it was a direct link to the original article, and to which Dean never bothered to offer any counter arguments, Jason is from the Vancouver area... and like Norstrom and Conroy, who were dealt to their preferred cities, was done a real solid.
