Homer signs Emery and Boucher and is attacked because Biron ended up a bargain that could possibly have been signed on the cheap... had Homer just been patient and waited as the Market shook out and quality players became available at a fraction of their original asking price.

Fast forward... Homer decides to hold off on finalizing the D-men and the Forwards to see how the team shakes out -- and maybe to see who is available, suddenly affordable -- before he decides to move Jones or not, and use the money elsewhere... and he is chastised for doing that.

Homer will do whatever he feels prudent... and it will make no difference in the arena of public opinion; he will have done it incorrectly in the eyes of those who step forward whichever decision(s) he makes.
