On the other hand, it's almost one of those situations that you have to put in a claim. But I still wouldn't.
It's very unlikely that he'll make it to us though. I really hope Poile lets us know after the fact if he put in a claim. I'm very curious. He probably wouldn't say and that would be for the best, truthfully.
He absolutely wouldn't say. If he did and we didn't get him...no harm, no foul...not putting bad mojo out for Detroit to see, nor are you sending any sort of "we tried to replace you" message to Lindback.
