What he should've done was sign another contract with us, spend the year in CT (with the opportunity to be an injury call up), and next year be with the big club. But anyway he'll be in Columbus and want out quickly.

If I were a borderline player, especially an offensive one like PAP and JAM, I'd go to the worst team because it would give me the greatest opportunity. Look at how it worked out for PAP who just signed a $16 contract. Even if he stumbles for the rest of his career and plays just horribly, he's still financially set for life. This worked out better than spending last season in a Newbury role (mostly Hartford, a little Rangers), followed by a $1/1yr contract he'd have signed this summer.
