so Zoltan was never actually Preds property, just the Ads??
Correct. He came to prospect camp and signed an ECHL/AHL deal, and has platooned in Cincinatti for most of the year.
Lajunen for Ford is strictly an AHL deal in terms of impact. Both were constant scratches leading up to the deal, and neither is likely to ever play an NHL game. Ford is a career AHLer, Lajunen is a marginal player that's likely going back to Europe at the end if the year anyway.
The Ads' game was on fox sports ohio tonight and I caught the 3rd period in a 7-1 thrashing at the hands of the lake erie monsters. I didn't notice much except that Valentine is terrible and the Latta likes to fight. Smith didn't look too good in net either. Kinda disappointing seeing part of my first ever Milwaukee game and it be that bad.
The Ads game was shown on ESPN America today so I got a chance to watch it. Magnus Hellberg won the game for Milwaukee, he looks a really nice prospect. Taylor Beck also impressed me with his offensive play.
