Weren't you contending these prospects wouldn't even get signed prior to this? Even I was nervous as the deadline approached, but it proved to be completely unfounded.
Well, in my post, I said "GR thinks", which means it was his speculation, not fact. The only reason I thought it note worthy is a lot of people say they don't believe something unless GR writes it, not one of the other writers, so that would carry extra weight with some people. And I never thought any of the unsigned prospects wouldn't get signed. The only signing I have said I have concerns about is Bouwmeester and that concern isn't because of the willingness of the Cats to spend the money but if Bouwmeester wants to remain with the franchise. If it comes down to money, I have no doubt that Bouw will remain a Panther.
