Mike Lundin has decided to sign with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League, according to Sports.ruís Igor Eronko and the teamís site.
Does anybody care? Does anybody even know what number he wore?
Actually worked out well for the Sens. If he was healthy or if they had signed someone else we never would have got to see where Gryba and Weircioch were in their development this season, which may have prompted moves for next season that may not be necessary now.
Anyway, good luck Mike, hope everything works out for you and you manage to get back to NHL at some point in the future. Benoit did it, maybe you can too.
In the trainer's room. Talk about bad luck, from the finger so he missed the start of the season when things were raw and getting sorted out, to the concussion. He is a better player than we saw (not a high bar!), hope he has better luck. The KHL is a good place to get it sorted out and see if the concussion is going to have longer term problems.
He seemed nice enough, but as people pointed out he struggled with injuries. Even with those injuries though, he could not crack a Sens lineup that had Karlsson and Cowen both injured at the same time. That does not bode well for his chances of making an NHL comeback.
