Is Mike Gorman gone?

Maybe so, though Flint coach Robbie Nichols just told me if the Jackalopes' star netminder was in fact a General, he sure would like to know!

Still, Nichols acknowledged he has been in touch with Gorman's agent, and that his club hopes to be involved with the Hamilton Bulldogs, the Toronto Roadrunners or maybe both.

If the rumor pans out, Odessa will get blasted by the fans. It seems downright unfair that a player who first went to Hamilton as a Jack could just be plucked away.

But if an NHL or AHL club is gonna give Gorman a shot (as well as a big chunk of his paycheck), they also get to tell him where to play.

And when you're talking about Edmonton or Montreal, two cash-strapped Canadian NHL organizations, proximity and travel costs are reason enough to put him in the "U."

Oh, and naturally, while I had Nichols on the phone I asked if he had ever spoke to Luch Nasato. "A few times," he said. "I like Luch... but that's about as far as our talks have gone. We'd like to have him back, but we're not rich here in Flint. He needs to do what's best for him."
