Keith Aulie re-signs: 1 year, two-way deal ($577.5k)
Aulie just got re-resigned, 1 year-2 way deal. @tblightning and @lightningtimes Interesting that he would accept a 2 way deal when he has waiver options. I wonder what that means if anything. Good to have the deal done though as this could be a show me year for him.

Jury's still out. Would like him to show us what Leafs fans saw in him for the past couple years on a consistent basis. He's still a young dman but this is his year to shine. Possibly the reason for a one year contract.
I really like Aulie. I think he has good potential and thought he played well enough while in Tampa/Norfolk all things considered.
He's got all the tools to be a great 2nd pairing dman, but his game is pretty unpolished right now. I think a big factor in this might be that he's played on 5 different teams in the span of ~2 years. That is a terrible environment to try and develop a player in. Hopefully he can spend few seasons focusing on a single system with Tampa.
