After missing out on Gilbert Brule, Cam Barker, and Nik Zherdev to new unknown NHL Contract rules, angry Jackets GM addressed the media.

"while we did contact Brule, Barker, and Zherdev and had deals in place for all 3, it came to my attention we were at our contract limit as deals with former players we did NOT resign this summer count. Why? No idea. It's a situation we will deal with and fix. I'm sorry to the fans I am trying to put the best team out there. We still have trades pending and in the next few weeks our team will be together and ready. I'm frustrated. It's stupid and annoying but what can we do. I spoke with other gms I know Philadelphia is trapped with Kubina and Betts. I don't understand. It is what it is. I wa excited to bring Brule and Zherdev back home where they belong and add a solid defenseman in Barker. We will overcome and win hockey games no matter what. I'm pissed but optimistic."
