I used to think he was going to be a staple on this team. Was he gone before the "x generation" ads?

He was here during that period.

I'm kind of hoping he gets claimed by someone...Predators seem desperate but not that desperate so maybe another team.

Yup. No "Full House" lineup.

Bah, I liked having TK back in the organization. He was a good influence to have around the young guys in WBS.

I would have liked him stashed away as grinder depth in WBS. Congrats to him for getting an NHL job though.

Let's teach him a lesson by bringing back Stephane Richer!

Wait, no, let's not do that.

Just a weird move by Lou. I wonder if he called Shero because it seems like a low blow, but just for ***** and giggles. Why wouldn't they just offer the guy a contract?

Because if the Devils offered him a deal then the Pens would have claimed him

TK wouldn't sign with the Devils and jeopardize his chance to be the first player in Baby Pens' history to score 100 goals.

I don't think this really matters, he wasn't going to be intregal anyway. However, if Lou wanted him, he had a couple months to sign him.

It seems odd that he'd be claimed, he needs to stick on their NHL roster because they'd need to waive him again to get him in the AHL, in which case, I believe the Pens would then have the right to claim him and assign him straight to the Baby Pens.
