“We had a good talk,” Sjogren said. “I told him I was going to come over and do everything to play here again. I’m ready to play North American hockey.”
Ironically, if there is an NHL lockout, Sjogren likely would begin this season where he began last – in Hershey, making $67,500 a season. If he played for the Caps he’d earn $900,000.
“I don’t want to go anywhere else, so I’ll probably stay here and play in the AHL,” Sjogren said of a potential work stoppage. “You have to play somewhere. I think the AHL is going to be a good league during the lockout, so I think it’s the best option for me right now.”
@RenLavoieRDS: NHL and NHLPA agreed to put a special waiver period in place, starting right now until September 15...
@RenLavoieRDS: That way, veteran players of the AHL, with 2 way contract, are going to have the right to play for their farm team.
@RenLavoieRDS: They won't have to be put on re-entry waivers if they are call back 3 days before the start of the season.
