Dusty

I know the organization likes what they saw of him last summer - he's a tenacious checking center who works his ars off - but you have to wonder why this guy can't manage any kind of scoring as a senior. I'd think he was a long shot to get a contract, but they gave one to John Toffey - the same type of player. Then again, that was before TB started having 50-man limit concerns.

Re...Dusty

It seems the coaching staff is searching for a place for him to find a grove so to say....Every game he seems to be listed somewhere different in the lineup card. Playing anywhere from the top-line center or left-wing to the fourth line center or winger...changes from game to game.

Minor League Contract

If I had to guess, I'd say they go the Atherton route with Collins. Rather than use a 50-man roster spot, I'd bet they sign him to a minor league deal and have him play with Johnstown next season.
