I mentioned in an earlier fanpost on the Predators acquiring Mike Underwood (sic) that sometimes their marketing department has "other agenda." Well, since I go to a couple of games a year, the Preds send me missives in my e-mail from time to time. While Eric G and Blake's (or for that matter Wellwood's) AHL experiences are not enormously different, the spin is different, I'd say. Here is the e-mail post (and yes, it was this large in my e-mail as well).
And Geoff doubted my assessment that Geoffrion (and now perhaps joined by Fisher-Underwood) was the "chosen one" (apologies to Weber).
