"I know in today's game you also need a player's signature, and I said, 'well let's get the sheet signed (by Nylander),'" said Lowe.Can this please end now?
According to Lowe, [Nylander's agent Mike] Gillis said his client was exhausted and asked if he could sign in the morning. Lowe agreed but says he never got a signed sheet back from the player. Instead, Nylander signed in Washington Monday afternoon.
UPDATE: There's a bit more here, including this:
Lowe said he called Caps GM George McPhee.
"He told me he got a call from the player and cited the Mike Vernon judgment that a player is not signed until he's signed."
