Didn't Jon Sim do exceptionally well one pre-season as well, or am I confusing him with Maneluk somehow?
Sim had a very good camp, I think that was the one after the lockout. Had a hat trick in one game, IIRC. Was with Richards and Knuble on a line.
Maneluk came out of one camp as the top line forward to Lindros' line, He was scratched not too long after. His agent had a battle with Clarke over a contract, was traded to Chicago for Roman Vopat, then the Hawks had a similar issue with the agent and traded him to the Rangers who then released him. He canned the agent and re-signed with the Flyers.
