Ugh, I got drawn into a cap space discussion *spits*.

Now I'm depressed.
Don't get me wrong, I think they should move Randy Jones for a bag of pucks if necessary. I really want to see Ryan Parent up with this team this season, because I think he has proven that the AHL isn't going to help him much more in his development...he needs to start learning to play at this level ASAP.

I was just noting the silliness of acting like Knuble's roster spot was going to be getting replaced by some 20 y/o rookie in this discussion, as the reason for moving him (or anyone) was so that you could bring back Briere.

In reality, I'd like to move Briere...but that's not going to happen.
