Valentenko had two shots to make the team.

In 2010-11 it was a numbers game and he still had options (Sauer did not and would have got claimed) so he was sent down and had an up and down year.

In 2011-12 he had a groin injury in camp that led to a bad preseason and that's all she wrote. By that point Erixon was on board and Torts was infatuated with Bickel and Blake Parlett was still around so he was pretty low on the food chain.

Sometimes players just have bad luck and never really get a crack or chance to stick. Ivan Baranka and Jarko Immonen, two guys I really liked come to mind.
