Rutherford was on a local radio station here in NC and was asked how things got started. Rutherford said that LA initiated everything first, they called and inquired about Williams. He thought about moving Williams and thought who he could bring in with speed, physicalness and someone who won't disrupt chemistry. Cole brings all 3 of those tangibles. So when he made the decision to move Williams, he said he got on the phone with Edmonton.
So that tells me JR called Edmonton, said I want Cole, LA wants Williams, who do you want in LA. And then the wheeling and dealing started.
Thx. Nice to have an informative post amongst all these fools arguing. I kind of figured it was LA who started everything. I think they wanted their return the most while at the same time departing with the most value.
