LOL... by no means was I intending to imply that was a bad thing!!! Just meant to point out they have addressed this area of need.

SFY keeps on grabbing those cheap Russian players. Where have we seen that before?

I wonder if he's a flight risk?

The NHL squad's d-man lineup is pretty much set unless Yzerman has no problems about trading/waiving MAB or sending Aulie down through waivers.

Probably not. I'm sure Yzerman and Brisebois told him the realistic story. Probably why he's on a two-year deal. Play a year in Syracuse and vie for roster spot next season.
