Jason was just on the Bill Watters Show on 640am in Toronto.
Bits and pieces from the conversation…
Asked how the search for a new team is going… Trying to be patient, letting things work out. Lot of guys still out there, teams have tightened up a bit and they are waiting to see if they can get them a little cheaper. He said he would love to go back to the BJ’s, love their direction, but they haven’t offered him a contract.
He said he received one offer, from the Wings a couple of weeks ago. They know what he wants and a deal could get done, but ball in their court now. Just waiting it out.
He had a great time in Detroit, first class all the way and still lives in the area. Wouldn’t be too bad to back there for him.
A little disappointed when he left, the way things happened. Got hurt on a hit from Torres and felt the Wings sort of gave up on him at the time when he was traded. It happens in the business.
He said he has gotten some advice from Brendan Shanahan over the summer and Shanny told him play in an established hockey market. Jason was asked about Shanny’s plans and he said if he were a betting man, he stays with the Devils.
