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

Canadiens re-sign Antti Niemi
Slovakia WC goalie Patrik Rybar signs with Detroit:
Red Wings add free agent goaltender Patrik Rybar
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.
Avalanche Re-Signs Gabriel Bourque
Avs re-sign Bourque to a one year deal
I wonder why they resigned him if they had too many goalies in their system already.
Because they like him as a prospect?
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.
And speculation yet that Dubas might move on from McElhinney
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.
Was rumoured to be signing in KHL
2 years 2-way deal for Brown
1 year 2-way for Bystrom
Pretty weird extension by Hyka, Vegas didn't even keep him for PO run, what is he expecting there?
Wouldn't the term "organizational depth" apply to his signing?
