Yeah they are also expanding one of the stores upstairs as well.  New ownership decided to bring in Fanatics (who run shop.nhl.com) because they said the #1 complaint from fans was lack of selection in the stores (which I agree on).  Fanatics promised to stock them pretty heavily with all kinds of stuff so we will have to see if they come through.

 

I'll be happy if they just have more options in player tees.

It may have been Mair, it looks like he signed from a PTO about a week after the season began in 2010. That's probably who I was thinking. Thanks!

Have we ever had this type of situation where a player has hung because he thinks Lou has a deal with out signing him?

 

I'm pretty sure Tommy Albelin hung around something like half a season before getting a contract.

 

There was someone a few years back too, who I cannot for the life of me recall, that came in on a PTO, stuck around practicing with the team for a few weeks, and got a contract later in October. If anyone remembers who, do chime in. Wanna say it was '08-'09ish.

They screwed up here by thinking he still was starting quality. I feel like last season was a huge string-along with both of the goalies. If he's told the best we (whoever) can do is a backup role, and he's willing to settle for that, that it won't be the same issue as it was last year. Last year neither goalie was told "you're the starter, you're the backup," whether it should have been apparent or not. I can't blame him for wanting to play more if his role wasn't defined.
