The one exception seeming to be Tomas Vokoun, and this has a huge asterik by it due to the whole team-being-sold fiasco.
It may or may not have an impact. Hard to know what's going through the heads of FA. I guess Poile will await their call to see what they're thinking
"Poile always tries to do the right thing by players."
I usually would agree with this. However, I was surprised by the comments about Dumont, saying he was only going to get a limited amount of icetime next year. Essentially saying he can't even play himself into a bigger role. It really seems like he's trying to force him out.
