i didn't think there was much risk either and there really isn't in the contract. however, if you listen to him:

it seems like he's still not 100%. the risk would be that the ~20 goals and top 6 minutes you were counting on him for don't materialize because he's unable to play or is re-injured. the avs probably could've resigned him for what we offered (or less even) but they decided to move on and avoid that risk.

i read through the thread on the avs board (kudos, btw, to cosmonut for inquiring about him on our behalf after the avs didn't qualify him 3 weeks ago) and most were sad to see him go. sounds like a good kid. hopefully he'll be able to stay healthy.
