Yesterday the Blades announced that forward Mathieu Roy (pronounce waaah, get the joke now?) will be back again this season. He had 46 points last season, and was called up twice to the AHL. (His Stats at HockeyDB)
This means that all my friend's favorite players are back next season, while my favorite player has yet to sign the contract he was offered (move it Lang or I'm switching to Nicholson). It also means we're up to nine signed players.
