The Fire are amidst a flurry of Nordic signings, and just weeks earlier Coach Frank Yallop and Technical Director Brian Bliss opted to pick up only six of a possible seventeen contract renewals.
Most fans tracking the Fire Front Office’s moves thus far assume that many of those athletes who were not offered a contract renewal may wind up back on the team with a renegotiated salary. (Of course, as Chris Rolfe learned, even a renegotiated contract doesn’t guarantee employment).
So… how good (or bad) were Fire players last year? Did they measure up to their contracts? Who is worth keeping?
