Any more scuttlebutt on a vet for the Amerks? Anyone laying in any vegan groceries?

Perhaps they work a deal with the Stars then. When he was well, he was using his speed to pressure the puck carrier defensively, then turning things quickly on the counter-attack. Hopefully he's got his legs back, since that was his most dynamic skill and separated him from the pack as it were. He tweaked the other knee at the start of last year and when he came back, it looked like he was having confidence issues.
As for the loan, usually the guy gets dealt. Granted, Amerk fans may recall one of the better loan arrangements in AHL history -- the Caps lent them Ollie Kolzig and he backstopped the Amerks to a Calder Cup final. The Caps decided they had something there and the next year he was in DC. (Not saying Schiestel is going to make the Sabres or anything outlandish, just that it isn't unheard of for a guy to go on loan and then return to his former team. Rare, but not unheard of.)
