To get back to the original topic of the thread (somewhat)....
Beech's gear is being shipped to WBS, and Beech didn't show up as planned..
From JB's Blog -- Link
Also, Kris Beech has not reported. As for what action the Penguins will take, let me quote Bylsma directly.
"Kris Beech was due to report today. He made it through waivers. I think his gear is getting sent here but the rumor I hear is he's not going to report. He should have reported today and he didn't and probably will be dealt with as such."
Is he going to Europe? "I don't know. Our feeling is that he's under contract for us and if he's going to play in North America, he needs to report to here. We knew this was a possibility and we'll deal with it accordingly."
