Says the Kamloops fan. It makes tons of sense. The CBJ think he's too good for juniors, and want him to play in the AHL. He and Weber were odd men out after our D down there is stacked, but if/when the lockout ends two of Erixon, Moore, and Savard will be in the NHL, freeing up a spot for Weber and Madaisky to play. ECHL is full of professional worthy players, especially in a lockout year. Why are you so mad? You're team is doing fine without him. You're worried about his development? What are you, his dad? Blazers brass? Can't teach winning? well, that's what we're trying to build here in Columbus, a team full of people who hate to lose, and look at Springfield and how good they are starting. He'll be surrounded by winning pressure, much more than in a Junior league powerhouse.
He'll be playing in the AHL this year if the lockout ends. Do I think the CBJ love the decision to play him in the ECHL? No, but if they send him down to juniors he can't come back up, and he's too good for Juniors.
