But I actually fail to see this debate? What are we arguing over? Who's more important? What should have been done?
Betts is cheap as hell, and we would have needed a center with or without Knuble...so, yes, I think Betts is still here.

The issue is that rather than nix Jones from the plans over the summer and re-sign Knuble, we kept Jones (and his salary) in the picture through training camp. Lost Knuble, and signed Lappy.

Given that we never really signed a true "third line center" if you sign Knuble, that goes a long way towards helping this team role the three "scoring lines" that they've struggled with all season.
