Rowe Deciding on Immediate Future

According to the Johnstown [i]Tribune-Democrat[/i], forward Randy Rowe will decide on his immediate future this week. Rowe is in talks with as many as five NHL teams, including the Lightning. Rowe was under contract with Springfield last year, though he spent all but four games in Johnstown where, despite contending with an abdomen problem and a near season-ending neck injury, he still scored 28 goals and 43 points in 45 regular-season games with the Chiefs. He also had two goals and four points in five playoff games. “I’m definitely thinking about Tampa-Springfield-Johnstown again,” Rowe told the [i]Tribune-Democrat[/i]. “There was just a lot of talking with teams,” he said. “I’m not getting any younger. I just want to make sure I’m in the right place to get called up to an AHL team. Camps are starting Saturday and Sunday in the AHL. It’s one of those things that it’s your future and you’ve got to make sure you make the right decision.”

Re:Rowe

He's really popular with the Johnstown fans so it's pretty important from the standpoint of keeping that fan base happy to retain Rowe, especially in the event some of their other favorites like Tarabrin or Desrochers won't be back this year.
