Republican Addresses Rumors

In today’s Springfield Republican they briefly mention the Edmonton rumors:

Quote:
Falcons president and general manager Bruce Landon met with the Booster Club prior to the game. "We have two years left on our deal with Tampa Bay," Landon said, debunking a rumor that Edmonton was planning to become Springfield's parent team next season. "I told our fans that I feel their pain." Landon also assured the fans the Falcons have not been sold and will operate next season.

As Nigel mentioned in the Greco/AHL discussion, Bill Barber and Claude Loiselle canceled their appearance with Springfield fans to watch Mike Lundin play UMass. If Maine's season is indeed finished, and considering Springfield's injuries to their defensemen (Rosehill, Rullier and now Matt Smaby), Lundin could be signed pretty quick - pending education issues, I'm sure.

This could be very good for

This could be very good for Lundin. If he gets an ATO right now he could get into about a dozen AHL games by the end of the year and really get his feet wet. That'll give him a really good idea about what he needs to work on going into the offseason and he can hit the ground running in his rookie season. I think the 9 games Atherton got last season really helped him a lot too.

Barber and Loiselle

Bill Barber and Claude Loiselle did NOT cancel their appearance with the Falcons Booster Club. They were the ones cancelled with Bruce Landon taking their place. Moreover, they were not cancelled to enable them to watch Mike Lundin. They were told not to come to the meeting long before watching Mike Lundin was even a thought. I certainly do not mean to sound harsh here, but the words in today's Sunday Republican are not correct, and the person who wrote the article was not in attendance at the meeting. Why were they cancelled you may ask? They were cancelled because there was simply nothing they could have said that would have made Falcons fans feel any better and it was far more appropriate to have Bruce Landon address a very concerned group of fans.

A very weak comment by Landon

I feel that this is more believable. I guess you have to register to read the full article
