Play to your ability, or your contract or end up like DiPi
just my 2c from the outside looking in
Wish Ricky all the best! Always felt bad for him. Didn't deserve being the butt of jokes. Never his fault that he couldn't stay healthy. Hope he goes down to AHL and kicks some serious ***!!!! Good luck Ricky!
2. This just gets rid of the distraction. He's a distraction and now this sets us up to keep him in the AHL, have him retire, or buy him out.
3. Poulin is a solid G prospect, lets see what he has at this level. Start him as a backup and look forward to him being our starter next year.
4. No ones gonna claim him but it's irrelevant. We keep his contract, but he's gone. It's a win
New Video. Isles season highlights 2011-12!
Good move. DP just isn't what that contract says he is. I'm looking foward to Poulin, really down year in the AHL but he has success at the NHL level and thats all that matters, the guy is only 22 I think. DP just couldn't come in and win games in a backup role. Defense didn't help, but that Senator game was horrific, and that is what sealed his fate my friends. I hope someone picks him up, but that is highly unlikely considering that contract. Poulin has had his rash of injuries too, and looked really disapointing down in Bridgeport lets just hope he brings his best back to the NHL level.
Yessssss finally gone, now they can have more stability at the goalie position. I can not say that I am sad he is gone. Next move is to bring up El Niņo.
