I have a very hard time believing this, but if it's true...this kid needs to suck it up and just spend the year "leading" the Sound Tigers. Snow and the Isles made a huge mistake with him last season...they made up for it by giving him a top role in the AHL to get his development back on track. It's working, but now is not the time to rush him back up to the NHL, just because the lockout ended. It seems like Isles mgmt recognized that and decided to leave him in the AHL.

And if it was because he wasn't invited to camp...well...it really wasn't "camp" to begin with. It was like, 5 days, one of which he spent LEADING the Sound Tigers in the scrimmage against the Isles at the Coliseum.
