We have acted in reasonably good faith towards He Who Shall Not Be Paid for the last few months. We have displayed his signature on the site as a show of solidarity and belief. We have been rebuffed with a holdout.

As such, each day that the holdout continues will mark another stamp on the signature. A visual mar to hearken the emotional, psychological and physical mar of his missing camp and it’s growing intensity with each passing day. Initially uncertain, much like us, the picture will reveal itself as we near the end of camp if he Who Shall Not Be Paid remains without a contract. Should that time come, his signature will be replaced with a more appropriate message, to remain until he decides that monetary posturing is less important than playing hockey.
