That's why you shouldn't have so many Canadians on your roster.
In all seriousness though, I didn't expect that. Didn't we keep him in the press box all year because we were too afraid of someone picking him off waivers should we send him to the Rock? Looks like no one in the NHL was that interested... or the KHL offer was very lucrative.
He was ok when he came in but we should have no illusions about him being a full-time guy here. He was never going to be more than a fill-in, press box guy, on any NHL team out there.
Good luck to him in the KHL but he wasn't going to make the NHL full time.
Yup. Not to cut a guy down just as he's no longer here (once a Jet, always a Jet), but if he is a regular in our starting 6, then we probably aren't finishing in the top 8 in the East. Our training camp would be stronger with him than without him, but ideally he would probably be our bubble/7th guy at best. Unless we dealt one of our 5 starting locks on D, one of Flood, Postma, & Clitsome would be getting cut after TC. Which of those three would be the best to lose?
