Oh I thought it was the final ten games of the season he played. Still not a big deal. Again, at the time he was supposed to be an NHL player. I don't understand why people around here think waiting to sign a guy that you know you want to sign is better than signing him when you want to sign him. In some situations, it can make a difference, but in the case of Bartulis, as you pointed out, no one else wanted him or could have had him because of his RFA status. Signing him in December or signing him in July would have not changed a thing.
