THE ROSTER IS GETTING FLIPPED.
I don't know about that. I remember a lot of board members were pissed off that Koivu wasn't offered a contract and that Kovalev was let go. And many, many hated the Gomez deal. Gill, too.
Moen, Gionta and Cammalleri, on the other hand, people were happy about.
I remember being happy we signed Samsonov way back when, haha... FAIL!!
