    Stunned, too- and a second for good for him, he struggled here at Michigan, found himself, and played really well for Minnesota. Now he's a pro. Other goalies that have come through here at the same time are not playing anymore.
    I was referring to the backup Justen Close when I said "good for him."

    While I'm not a fan of the mid-season leaving, I imagine it is hard for a goalie to turn down an opportunity like this. Suddenly you're not buried on the depth chart and they're offering a bonus.

      I'm confused. What does being buried on the depth chart have to do with LaFontaine moving to the NHL?

      • I have no problem with the kid going to the NHL early. The 70k (AHL)/750k (NHL) contract doesn't hurt. But, I am sure it was more about being able to make it to the pro-level and living that dream.

        • Four of their AHL goalies are out/injured. And the ECHL team had to sign an emergency tender to fill their gaps from the AHL call ups.

          And, one of the healthy AHL'ers is with the parent club.

          LaFontaine gets an 80k signing bonus as well.

          He's likely coming to Chicago, and is a phone call from the show.

          • Holland has talked to Evander Kane's agent and has said, "I believe in second chances", LMFAO. Isn't this about his fifth chance at this point? And don't the Oilers need to shore up the back-end and goaltending if they want to make a deep playoff run?

                            • Don't look now Scooby you might have to stop complaining.

                              Wild with 3 wins in a row and are 2nd in the West for Pts% with 3 or 4 games in hand for 2 of the 3 teams ahead of them. Only COL presently has the higher Pts%.

                              btw regarding the college scoreboard here at USCHO the abbreviations they adopted a few seasons back still annoy me. MND for Minnesota Duluth? Was UMD really that confusing to anyone that cares to check NCAA scores?

                                There are plenty of things I could say about USCHO's coverage of college hockey. Most of them aren't positive.
