In an interview this morning with Rick "The Bear" Wile, Blazers General Manager Craig Bonner talked about D Linden Saip's decision to leave the team...
"While watching his play this year...I would describe as up and down and I could tell there was probably some stuff going through his mind..some doubts or some questions. Linden came into my office this morning and talked. He's not sure what he wants to do with his hockey future. He's decided to leave the team."
Bear followed up with a question regarding his potential return if things are cleared up?
"To be honest I'd have a real tough time bringing Linden back to our line-up when he's quit our team. He'd have to come up with a pretty darn good story to return to our team."
