WTF? This doesn’t make sense. If this is in fact the case, there’s something more going on. Whether we’ll ever know what…I don’t know. I know he got sent home from Syracuse in the playoffs and there was some fan scuttlebutt that he had, shall we say, attitude issues, but that’s hardly earth-shattering in a 20-year-old jock who’s still got some growing up to do.
I really liked what I saw out of this kid at CBJ camps, so if it does turn out that he’s really quitting for good, it’s a loss for this team.
ETA: Not a lot of details, but a few more in this morning’s Dispatch. In better news, Filatov got his visa, and will be here for rookie camp.
