I Would Think...

I would think Desharnais, at the very least, would be a guy they'll look to retain if not for Lightning camp then for Falcons camp. Czuy and guys like Woolger and Wheat would also need to be considered, IMO.

Harlan Pratt?

This is probably a "who cares" kinda thing, but I don't see the little bro on there. Does he have a contract with one of our minor league teams still? How about Cey? It seems that the details of his contract were never released, so I'm not even sure if he's under contract. I'd also bet Desharnais is being looked at very closely. He's done very well for himself for us thus far.

Harlan Burned His Bridges

Harlan refused reassignment to Johnstown last year at about mid season and was quickly dealt away to Bridgeport. He signed in Western Europe somewhere, I'd have to look it up. I don't know why Cey isn't invited except, perhaps, it's just a numbers problem. Beech wasn't invited either and they usually invite anyone entering a contract year as a prospect. They have six goaltenders between Denis, Holmqvist, Burke, Ramo, Boutin and Coleman. Desharnais would be a star in Johnstown IMO, the same way Tarabrin was for them last year and he's got the upside to become a Perrin type player. I just hope some other team isn't swooping in to sign him.

thanks

I missed that about Harlan totally, thanks. I really, REALLY liked Cey last year in camp. He's very raw (maybe too raw is the problem) but he's quick and his positioning was decent. I'm guessing you're right and it was just a matter of too many goalies.
