More Thibault news

Before I forget - Craig Patrick said something interesting tonight before the game: They wanted Thibault to take a two week conditioning assignment in Wilkes-Barre and he refused. The interesting part is that he would have remained on the 23 man roster had he accepted the assignment. Since he refused, the Pens waived him and will be able to assign him to Wilkes-Barre should he clear waivers. If he refuses that assignment, the Pens can suspend him and not pay him (saving some of that money they'll need to pay Fleury).

This one will be interesting to follow. Hopefully it all works out for the best.
