I just talked to him and he's in Fort Wayne tonight.
``I'm unofficially here and I'm thrilled about it. I love it here.''
He's getting his physical done tomorrow, and he's confident there won't be any problems.
``The knee is great,'' he said. ``I saw the doctors in New York, and I'm cleared to go and everything is healed. I'm actually in better shape now becuase I had time for everything else to heal. I don't feel my age which is good.''
He actually sat out a year and a half which he was absolutely awful, but also good because it made him appreciate things a lot more.
As for being released by Utah, he said it was a salary cap/roster/guys sent down from Calgary thing, and he left on good terms.
``I didn't plan to come back to Fort Wayne, but as soon as my phone rang and I saw it was David, it made perfect sense,'' he said. ``My phone was ringiging quite a bit all day yesterday, but there was only one call I was really excited about.
