If they stick him in the minors, I'm going to be three shades of pissed off. Expect a full-scale meltdown from me if that happens.
You wont be the only one who is pissed. Imagine how George Gwozdecky is feeling right now. Sign the kid and then stick him in the AHL? Thank goodness Tyler Ruegsegger came in a year early.
Still unless they dump Turgeon, I'm not sure where Paul is going to fit. Though on the bright side, we could potentially have three Pioneers in the lineup this year with Laaksonen, Stastny and Rycroft
