Edmonton was and is a better fit for that player. They will re-sign him. He will not become a RFA
Also thank you.
I agree that the Fs they had and added, along with a couple of decent guys in the D prospect pool, did make Edmonton arguably more attractive then.
However, I believe we have improved more greatly, and will have more flexibility w/Richards gone next year. Perhaps we are more attractive now.
I was hoping someone, possibly Rangerboy, would have some CIA level ***** identifying a core reason was Torts, and the aggravation with his nonsense.
Thus no more Torts - no impediment there to future JSchultz.
However, it seems the core reason is the x factor of family in that his home is an hour away from Edmonton, according to Trxjw.
