No idea why I decided to check today's transactions for the CHL's Missouri Mavericks. A hunch, maybe. I gasped when I saw the cold truth in black and white:
Sam Bowles (C) waived
Where will Sam go from here? Will he head back to Columbus? He told me this summer that he loved playing here and especially loved his role as a scorer. I'd heard he was a third-line player in Missouri, which is not the Sam Bowles we know.
The Snakes have 10 forwards now. What happens if Sam wants to come back? Another hunch is that Jerome would welcome him back. So who would go?
Getting ready to call both Jerome and Sam.
