Honestly, I'm not sure why he's referring to the Gophers as "we." He's no longer part of the team. It's now "they" or "them." He made an "I" decision and is still talking about "we." The new "we" is the Carolina Hurricanes and whatever minor league team he plays for.Goalie Jack LaFontaine is the first Gophers player to leave for the NHL midseason in nearly 15 years, signing with the Hurricanes on Sunday.www.startribune.com
As for the rest of the team, they need to forget about Laffer as ASAP. He's opted out and moved on. The sooner the team does that, the better.
