    Almost sounds like Waddell drove him to the airport himself...

    Ilya Lyubushkin (Lokomotive KHL) to Arizona, 1 year ELC. Ilya Lyubushkin at eliteprospects.com

    He's stay-at-home defenseman, looked good in the last season, but can say nothing about, what one should expect from him in the NHL. But I think Arizona is a good team to start in the league for a seasoned KHL defenseman.

    I wonder why they resigned him if they had too many goalies in their system already.

    I don't disagree but sending a prospect to another organization seems to be a way of marginalizing prospects you may not want around.

    I was wondering the same thing but speculation is the Leafs might lose one (or both) of Sparks and Pickard.

    For skaters, I would agree. Goalies are a different animal. If you have three goaltending prospects you like, sending him to another organization on loan seems like a better option than forcing someone to play in the ECHL if that player is better than that league. In any case, I don't think Pickard will be re-signed and the Maple Leafs have options in goal.

    Just my opinion.

    Wouldn't the term "organizational depth" apply to his signing?
