I can only assume that plan B was executed, and if Rucinsky was offered a contract, I'm glad that he didn't accept.
I seem to remember Maloney or Sather saying that they originally weren't looking at Shanny because they didn't think they could get him. But then suddenly they had a chance to get him so they took it. That's what really put a big hit on Rucinsky's chances to come back.

So I'm saying I don't think the signings would have been the same if Rucinsky had signed first.
