Nashville sent some players to Milwaukee this late afternoon.
An Admirals fan may be happy to see Gabriel Bourque and Ryan Ellis on the list.
An Admirals fan may not be happy that Roman Josi and Craig Smith AREN’T on the list.
And depending on how you felt about Jon Blum, you may not be feeling anything about his name not being on the list. (update) Josh Cooper of the Tennessean reporting that “Defenseman Jonathon Blum said he would sign a contract with the Admirals.”
They still may come eventually… Tomorrow maybe? And Josi and Smith are on entry level deals, which may or may not have some special relationship with the waiver wire based on how many games they played in Nashville last year. I’m not well versed in that part of the soon-to-be-deceased CBA… So we’ll play the waiting game for now.
But ladies and gentlemen — here is a good chunk of your 2012-13 Milwaukee Admirals!
