He was offered a bad deal (1 way) and not at all a good deal from his side. Give up money for school for a terrible deal. He chose not to sign and came back after only being at the AHL team for a day or so as he had no intentions (nor should he) to sign. Yes, he did have other options, so it was his choice.
I am not about to get into the stupid argument many of you deal in concerning him. The call he received Sat, was a soft call and as far as the he was already going down before he was hit comment; lets say we will agree to disagree. He is a great player who has a reputation as many in this league did/do. He has gotten a reputation and they as a team and he as an individual will have to deal with it. Whatever you keyboard critics say is pointless as the kids, team, media cares less. As has been said many times, if you could have, you would have. You are at home/work/public access point commenting on players because you are not one. Many on here go the route of tearing down 1 person, team, forum member, for no reason other than express an opinion. At least that is what they will hide behind knowing all well they are doing it to stir the $hit. If people on here would attempt to be positive rather than idiots to incite other fans we would have a much better community but the few who choose to just start crap ruin it. I am sure this rant is pointless but wanted to get it out none the less. All have a great day and as always Go Ams!
