There are something like 5 teams already interested in Leschyshyn, but he told Muckler that his #1 choice is to stay in Ottawa, even if he was in a minor roll again, to just fill in for injured guys. I'm thinking he'd take a pay cut to stay here as well. Leschyshyn as a depth dman is pretty good, especially if he can be signed for less.
You know it's a complicated system with europeans. That being said, to my knowledge, a player can't go straight from the draft to the AHL like Meszaros would. They have to at least put in one year somewhere else. Meszaros could play in the AHL in 2005-06, but not this fall. He will only be 18 at the draft of the season, and therefore ineligible.
Regardless, he is playing in Vancouver of the CHL anyways. That's basically confirmed.
Where did you hear that? Do you have a link to that...that's interesting.
Well, for one thing it's been all over Vancouver radio. Personally, I've had it confirmed that both Marek Schwarz and Meszaros are going to Vancouver, and at least for Schwarz, that was the only place where he was really interested in playing. I believe these two have the same agent, so these two went to Vancouver as package almost.
