Playing split-squad games that late in the preseason came with some expensive price-tags, despite some meaningless wins.
And sure if I'm going to be critical of the early losses, the later wins (especially the one at home against Nashville) with close to the opening roster has to be acknowledged.
No real surprises outside of Martinek, who could still be signed if Hamonic goes on IR which made Sunday's games very expensive along with breaking up your opening night roster that late to play meaningless split season games. (No, I forgot to include the eight man veteran rule in my previous entry because those kind of games are still somewhat new)
Makes playing those split-squad games an even bigger risk at a point the roster should be final.
Maybe a trade comes/waiver pickup.
Alan Quine has left juniors, he's now a Sound Tiger.
