Understandable that Cormier was sent back down, nonsensical that Gagnon was called up over O'Dell.
My thoughts exactly.
I don't like this for 2 reasons.
1) It appears that O'Dell is outplaying Gagnon this year. What does that say to our prospects that playing well doesn't translate to getting a shot?
2) Gagnon is getting paid his 500K whether he is in the AHL or NHL. O'Dell has been one of, if not the best Ice Cap this year. He is making 65K in the AHL. If he would have been on the roster for the last 10 Jet games he would have made 82,317 ((675K / 82) * 10). (I'm guessing this is right)
The org couldn't have given this opportunity (and massive money reward) to O'Dell for his work this year?
