      That actually is a fantastic sign.

        Great for him. But I believe we no longer own his rights, and anyway we have Sorokin! The value of prospect depth, we only needed one of them to work out, and one did.

          I thought both would be our future goalie tandem. Can't complain though, Sorokin always had the higher ceiling and he's here now.

            It would have been great if both worked out, if nothing else one could have been a trade chip. But we had to have one of them work out and we got that.

              We may not have his rights but I'm not sure anyone else does either? So we could go get him if he is turning it around. Even though I know it is Varly and Sorokin for at least another 2 years. Goaltending has been the last thing I have worried about since Barry and Lou took over.

              • Linus has played his way back to the SHL by signing a one year contract with Skellefteå. It's the highest division in the Swedish ice hockey system and the same league Linus had all his success before coming over to North America. I thought he had a bright future before injuries derailed it. Hopefully he can recoup some of that potential.
