I think it played into DiPietro's situtation in his rookie year. I think it absoultely played into Luongo's demotion a game short of his bouns and maybe was the final issue for Milbury, even though Luongo played in the AHL playoffs for the Isles affiliate in Lowell at the time.
Absolutely. The Penguins are taking their sweet time in deciding whether or not to make contact with Fleury's agent. Time is quickly running out for them as they will have to decide before opening night whether their new goaltender is in their plans this season or not.
