We need one of the pretend journalists over at the DFP to get Greer to decisively state he is staying like they did with Coyle before we should all breathe a sigh of relief!

While I dispute your use of the phrase "pretend journalists," I do wish they'd just ask Quinn straight up about Roberto. From the comments section of their blog, it just seems like they are very passive on that issue. "Quinn hasn't said anything more about Roberto and we won't publish unsubstantiated rumors." Okay, but have they ASKED Quinn about Roberto? If they have, and Quinn says no comment, then at least report that. Otherwise it comes off seeming like they aren't doing their jobs.

Okay, well that doesn't sound as bad as the previous posts. Maybe Greer is considering sticking around if Oksanen is or might be out for the year. Though what kind of reception will that get in the locker room? "Hey teammates, I was leaving you guys mid-season but now that our best goal scorer is out, I am willing to stick around." May not go over so well. That would make sense re: Roberto, if it is true. However, I am not sure that it is.

I doubt that Oksanen's status has anything to do with Greer's decision to stay or leave.

Perhaps privacy laws limit DQ's capacity to comment upon the matter. Just speculation.

Sure, that is probably or definitely the case. But the reporters aren't asking. Their job is to ask and report that Quinn said "no comment" or "I can't give you an answer to that question." Their job isn't to sit around at press conferences and hope Quinn brings Roberto up on his own.

Partially agree, it would be nice to have gotten some form of status update, but we don't know the behind the scenes makeup of the situation. It's pretty clear Quinn isn't commenting on anything regarding him, and may not be able to, but I do agree that some form of update along the way even if it was something along the lines of "Quinn continues to have no comment on Roberto's status" would be nice. It's semantics though, not really a huge issue. Seemed pretty clear early on that we wouldn't be seeing him back for some time, if at all.

This must have happened too fast for him to get over here and scoop everyone on this story with vague statements about something going on. I would expect him to break this stuff.

IF this turns out to be true, i don't see it as a big loss. Frankly, greer has been a bust so far.

If Greer does leave, it certainly wouldn't be a surprise. How many Quebec-born kids, drafted by a team with two hall-of-fame french canadians running the show are plying NCAA hockey?:D You have to think that Sakic, Roy, and company are keeping a close eye on their risky 2nd round choice (if he doesn't blast that one timer in against UND, I almost guarantee he drops at least one round). We all had high hopes that, given how young he was last year, he would really blossom into an offensive threat this year. It just hasn't happened. Maybe another year away. The difference between he and Coyle seems to be that Greer seems to gel with his teammates. I hope he works through it, but this season hasn't gone as he wanted, so I think it is natural to be looking to change things up.

As far as Roberto - certainly a strange situation.

And that would really stink if Ahti is done. He was definitely having a better season than I expected.

FWIW: Mike McMahon tweeted translations of two tweets from a Quebec journalist:
Greer denies Q report. Says discussion with agent & family but nothing more. (https://twitter.com/MikeMcMahonCHN/status/677595896180248577)
Greer says he has signed nothing and still has two exams to take at BU (https://twitter.com/MikeMcMahonCHN/status/677596112526643200).

Wasn't it about this time last year that the rumor came out of Quebec that Eichel was leaving to play in the Q?
