I’m admittedly biased because I know the family, but I don’t understand why he wasn’t given more of a shot here. He put up great numbers in 2 seasons in the AHL (including 1st team AHL All Star). Finished 2nd in the KHL in defenseman scoring last season. Yet the $h!teee Wild can’t find room on their roster for him, and basically trade him away for almost nothing in return?
Not the Wild’s fault he turned down a contract last summer and decided to go overseas.
Curious if they were just nowhere near each other on contract talks. Does seem a bit of a head scratcher (on the return for him) since his numbers all did look good and it seems like there was a legit opportunity to get more ice time this year.
This may be Bill Guerin letting it be known he isn’t going to play games. Want to hold a team up while signing contracts in the KHL? Do svidanya.
Totally agree. Given the return other GMs may think the same thing. You want to demand something unrealistic and jerk us around?? Bye Felicia.
