I had Blake and Bell tossed on waivers to dispose of them to make room, and other vets traded, but you cried and complained that I can't have that and they need to stay. You have to make up your mind if your accusing me on not wanting to play the kids now as my position has never changed.
TSN panel discussed this yesterday during the game that Fletcher didn't cut it to the bone deep enough, and left too many vets standing for a team looking for a Top pick in 2009. I agree with them but then again realize some of the players staying is simply a case of no market rather than no desire to move them out.
So you are back to wanting young players to be given spots, a return to normal as it were.
Putting players who have value on waivers to give them away for nothing is kind of dumb, don't you think? There was a market for Kubina less than 7 months ago so why not now? Toskala, surely some team would want him.
Since you were watching TSN did you happen to see Tortorella say that the last thing that Wilson is going to do is coach for a high draft pick?
