Tyutin turned 23 on July 19.On July 1,he was 22 years old with two years of accrued service counting the lockout year.Tyutin won't be a UFA until 2011-12 as a 27 year old with 7 years of accrued service
In that case, 2 years for less than $2MM total is a brilliant, brilliant deal.
i mean id like to see some young guys get a shot at cracking the lineup at camp (not to say that toots isnt young) but i mean Pock, Staal i think have the skills to play in the NHL... but with Toots and Rosy signed we basically have our 6 starting DMEN for next year
Staal basically has to play so well that it forces management to do something. I think that's a smart way to handle a kid who can't go to the AHL. Plan for him to go back to the CHL, and if he wows you, make other plans.
