AHL trades involving players signed by NHL teams (ie McArdle, Trotter, etc) and "loaning" players to other AHL teams (ie Aliu earlier in the year, although he was later traded to CGY so he stayed with Abbottsford) is basically just transferring the AHL rights to those players for a certain amount of time. In those cases it was for the rest of this season. Winnipeg still holds McArdle/Mannino's.etc rights. Next year if those guys are re-signed and assigned to AHL they head to St. John's again.
They were in penalty box a lot in that period.... can't shoot very much when your in box... hopefully we can stay out of there so we can score another goal or two to win the game. Relying on goalie too much but is good thing hes very sharp tonight.
