    Smith is still listed as D coach. I don't remember anything definitive but perhaps they said that. I expect he will stay.

    Kaiton on the chopping block?

    It looks like some options are still open including Chuck K returns or simulcasting the TV broadcast like they do in Texas

    I didn't think we would be interested in Niemi but another team that might of been now has to look at the remaining options to address goalie needs.

    I don't think we do. Brindy mentioned him so I think the assumption is he will stay but until a coaching staff is made official I'm not sure we really know.

    My guess is that if we sign him we either intend to play him or trade him. Otherwise we let him walk.

    Will a Finland fast food chain be featured at PNC next season? Will we need to show our passport to gain entrance to the stadium?

    I doubt we sign Stemper. The injury, a question mark on his ability to regain form, the need to make space for new faces. The upside of a healthy Stemp is that his play with Skinner is pretty good. Will Skinner even be back? I think we let Stempniak walk. Ryan is a curious decision. He is versatile, good possession numbers, good at the dot. But with Aho and Lindy maybe ready to move to center I wonder where he fits. You could of course sign him to a reasonable contract and make the new faces earn the right to displace him or sign him with an intention of including him in a trade. I think some other teams would be interested. I could see this going either way. Ward
