    I was under the impression that he has no interest in playing in the WHL, and it really wasn't even Regina's decision to make.

    From what I've been told; Legien's departure from the Pats was a mutual thing. There are always back stories on these matters and things floating around all the time, but suffice to say it was an agreed to situation by both parties. Platt didn't make the final roster and that was foreseeable. The Pats have the three OA d-men at this point however that could all change quickly. Having three veteran guys at least until Jan 10th gives the young guys some feeling of security and are good mentors in the short term.

    Scoring is a bit of an issue compared to past seasons. The top guys are showing signs of starting to find their groove. The biggest area of concern is their lack of discipline (5th highest penalized team) and worst PK in the league (dead last). When you're taking far too many penalties and are killing at a 64% rate, you are creating a world of hurt for yourself. Penalties and lack of team discipline have hurt this team over the last five years. It's a very serious concern that needs to be addressed by management and coaching.
