  2. FL no long is affiliated with San Antonio and doesn't have an AHL team to send him to. Looks like he's playing on the 4th line in FL.

    Didnt they agree to share the Wolves with Atlanta?
     
  4. No that was a deal that the Wolves made to just get Weiss & Bouwmeester for the playoff run. The rumor was Florida was in discussion with Toronto to share the Marlies for next season but that seems to have died off. Still, I doubt he would've signed to play in the AHL where he may not get top 6 icetime on some other teams' affiliate than staying over in the Czech league now that the lockout is over and he would get top 6 icetime over there. I think the thought process is his defense is solid enough to play on the bottom 2 lines in FL and he should eventually move his way up as he develops. But I think that'll just hamper his offensive game for the future and he'll be lucky to be a 2nd liner in the future at best. Another great example of how FL does not know how to develop players.
