I can only count JMFJ...Smyth...Greene...Zeus...and Scuderi as the true positives here...
The "bubble boys" are 2% Stoll...Modin...Williams and Odie...
Little Bunny Foo Foo addressed the majority of it so I won't repeat what he said. The point which he touched on briefly that I want to expand on is the time when those pickups occurred. Cloutier, Teverdosky, Preissing, Gauthier and Blake were all bridge players that Dean picked up when he needed warm bodies to fill his boxes. Hell you could add Nagy, Modry, Lundmark, Heward, Stuart, Calder, and Moulson to the list. But in the past two years he stopped taking on anyone that would walk through the door and started taking only quality. Look at the past two years and the only questionable pick up is Jones who was brought in on a one year contract at half price to hold down the last spot on the roster. (And even Diehard can see why we got him in the first place.)
I would also like to add Quincey to the quality pick up list.
