According to Dave Isaac Holmgrem seems to be under the (wrong) impression that he can play a 10th game and his contract still won't count. If Holmgren allows him to play 10 and send him back to juniors he will waste the first year of his entry level deal.
ohhhhh!, ok that makes sense then.

that's very concerning, actually. i knew that if he played more than 10 games that his contract would count against the limit, but i had no idea that it would negate the first year of his ELC. someone send homer a telegraph or something. maybe a currier pigeon.
