You're just making that up.

I know I said the trade may be ok, if Jones became what Poile claimed he could be. And since he had good NCAA credentials I was hopeful. I didn't see any more hype then that. Some of us also said, what do you expect as a return for Zids when every team in the league knew we were going to trade him? Still, there was a lot of complaining on the return from "homers", not all praise. I also said I was sure he'd make the team out of camp last year. And was right. We had nothing, and with Poile's comments it seemed he was going to get his shot. Didn't last long though...

And you grumble almost as if you expect what is said on message boards effects Poile's decisions?

The one-way contract thing is disappointing. We didn't overpay for a guy who makes the team. But ya gotta make the team!
