Sorry George, I personally don't remember reading anything specific and damning about Umberger in print. There were several people on this board who went to those meetings, though, and perhaps they could corroborate what has been said.

I think Prucha makes a good point that perhaps Umberger never wanted to be a Ranger. If he doesn't want to be here, then we don't want him.

As for him being used for trade bait, we got a 2nd rounder when he signed in Philly. With all the questions around him, you would not have gotten that much in a trade for him.
