No wonder our team sucks. Our GM's patience is the same as the fan base.
Your last line is quite the baseless comment, Nate.

Because the user you quoted doesn't care much for Engqvist, you tie it in with Bergevin having no patience? Did he not extend a QO to Engqvist to retain his rights? Engqvist signing with the KHL is in no way relevant to the patience of Marc Bergevin. It just means he wants a bigger window of opportunity to grow and feels that AHL time will do nothing for him at this point.

Do I think he'll rip it up in the KHL? Probably not.
