Pretty sure Justin is already back in Russia making a much better salary than he could in the ECHL. I think he left two or three weeks ago.
Thank you Mr. Graham for taking a stand on an NHL goalie.....having that burden last year did not help us out as it appears you noticed as well. Good choices so far...
Still would be nice to have a veteran D man for leadership.
Also, would be nice to have a bigger guy in center with some weight (as per your comments) to cause disruptions in front of the net.
Best of luck Gary.
Blake didnt know if you knew anything about Josh Brittain if he is still available or if he is under an AHL contract. Thanks
Hershey Bears signed Josh Brittian to an AHL contract today.
This is going to be a gong show, We are probably going to be the most hated team in the ECHL by a ton of players, the reason is this " I pull the trigger on a player when I want him." This is our coach saying "I offer players 800-900 per week and then get them here and cut half of them because lets face it there is no way (unless Franks is doing eh old CHL thing like we used to do and pay players under the table. This league has a salary cap of $12,000.00 per week which averages just ofer 550 per player per week if we keep all 21 playes. So what gives? Are these players so stupid they cant see the writting on the wall>? No AHL affiliate means no loaned players that We dont have to pay and loose on the CAp. JD was our best goalie last year and got paid around a half milllion dollars to play here. And didnt cost a dollar to Franks, SO WITH noNHL affalite we are screwed, because the dollars dont add up
Oh yeah I heard the Brittian deal is a two way and he most likely will be playing in the ECHL He would have been the best forward here, Just like Maggio
Hmmmmmmm, "JD our best goalie last year".....wow, I must have been sleeping or not present at those games....maybe thats why he got traded and will most likely not play much. WOW.
