And WTF is with Gainey downplaying to the media what a starting goaltender is worth? Talk about selling your assets short when you are trying to increase the value of your product.
I am certain the man has lost his mind.
Can't you see the obvious? Instead of thinking BG lost his mind, think a little more, BG has been dangling Halak to other teams for some time now. If other GMs already aren't ready to give much more than what he is saying, his worth won't become more with a little media stunt. Holmgrem... "oh oh oh, Gainey said Halak is worth a first rounder in an article!!! Damn, I was wrong, guess I'll call Bob then".
Instead BG is trying to manage Halak, to make him patient, to show him that he can't amputate the team for his needs only. Halak being a team player, will understand this, as he did before in the past and will wait his turn.
Seriously dude, don't quit your day/family job.
