Hershey list is now at 5 players with Helmer re-signing (he started last season, 08-09 on an AHL contract; signed with the Caps during the season for the remainder of that season; the 09-10 season is an AHL deal)
Cameron said defenseman Jon Paiement has already signed an AHL contract with the Albany River Rats. But Cameron doesn’t expect Paiement to spend time in Estero, unless he is rehabilitating from an injury.
Maybe Anaheim didn't approach Hershey about the use of their goaltender... or vice-versa?
LeNeveu is a UFA.
Either way I figured that Neuvirth would go into the season as the clear cut starter and would be slated to play at least 50 games. I don't think Bacashihua would come to Hershey knowing that he will only get 30 or so games.
