As for Riopel, hope he develops nicely and he does well in Training camp. Hope he repels a lot of pucks.
Also the article still calls them the Philadelphia Phantoms :/
The way I understand it (which could very well be wrong) is that when a player is on LITR it is insurance that pays his salary and not the team. Aside from counting towards 50 contracts, he is no other expense to the team.

I totally expect the 6th to be OKT, with Syvret to be the 7th or first guy up. That of course assumes that Jones is traded which I pray for daily.
