so I guess it was just a coincidence that Emery was put on LTIR right at the trade deadline.
He did shop around, and said prices were too high.

He still ****ed up by not getting someone better than Boucher as a number 2, but my point was that Holmgren saying Emery was done had no effect on the market. Putting him on the LTIR did have an effect, but I think it was a necessity to any possible deal.
