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.
I don't think I'd care either if I was earning an NHL paycheck while getting to play in a league that I excel in as opposed to being ridiculed and embarassed for the same salary.
