The words of a great man...

Anyone?

BG at his press conference.
Exactly. It's not that BG gave up on Balej, it's that we needed somebody good so we had to give up someone good for him. I can't see this trade coming back to bite us because I could never see Balej having much of an impact with us. From what I've seen of him, he's got to be playing top 6 to be effective and truthfully I could never have seen him cracking our top 6. There was just too many good prospects ahead of him with more skill and size.

Balej is a decent player, but won't be more than a second liner on a mediocre team.
