Herald Net: Nick Patterson reports a trade of Islander prospect Robin Figren was all but worked out with the Regina Pats however, the Edmonton Sun revealed that one of the conditions on Figren reporting to the expansion Oil Kings this season was the right to veto any trade, and he decided to veto the trade despite Regina being a contender with Oil Kings more likely to miss the playoffs.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
The comments from the Oil Kings gm Bob Green at the time here gave me the impression they were loyal to Figren, if he did in fact veto a deal as per his contract that put's things in a different perspective but in the end it comes down to what is best for Robin Figren's development and he's happy in Edmonton.
