In EDM instead of thanking their lucky stars, they curse their bad luck that their 4th rounder is now playing like a first rounder and they will now have to pay a 4th rounder, 1st rounder money (and let him go to another team).

Only in EDM will they throw money at first rounders to play the 4th line, but balk at a 4th rounder who looks like he could play the first line soon.

We didn't draft Parise because we already had small talent that isn't around, and now they are doing the same things again.
You don't give every player what he wants. That's what the problem was with that idiot Comrie. They gave in and then he wanted more than he was worth. Teams shouldn't be giving rookie max for every rookie. Why should he get more than Gagner who was drafted 6th overall? It doesn't work that way.

"He just ate up Robyn Regehr for dinner, a spectacular play by Hemsky, and Robyn Regehr has got doo doo all over his face" - Rod Phillips call on Hemsky's goal vs the Flames
