Kelly McCrimmon told him to sit at home because he wasn't trading him. He ended up reporting after.
I think Barzal may report though next year. They actually have alot of high end young talent already there with Hauf,Theordore,Green,Hickman and Troock. Gropp may not be coming this year but I think if they can turn it around this season and show something he might end up joining up with Barzal next year. Nothing like playing with a top end guy like that to up your draft stock right?
Too bad Farwell was a moron and kept Calvin Pickard at the trade deadline they could have gotten even more pieces for a real powerhouse
I feel bad for Calvin... He earned a shot at the Mem cup, he faced so much rubber ?
