"We've been through difficulties all year long...Not just coach Matthews stepping down because of his health, but the winning streak, the losing streak, losing my right-hand man Marcel Desjardins to Hamilton...
Wow, ranking the loss of Desjardins up there with the Matthews fiasco and the losing streak! That's high praise that bodes well for the future.

Might be playing up the value of our new GM, to up the ante on our compensation??

Has anyone heard if we actually owe compensation for signing Marcel??

Yes, there will be no compensation.
