All this is also in an era where playing four lines for reasonable minutes saves the top lines and gives better balance... Why he signs a player that most likely will not be able to play regular shifts -- albeit more than Cote, but less than Asham -- rather than just bring back Asham for probably less is beyond me. Shelley IMO is a luxury that will be used once every dozen games or so, and then only for a brief time. I believe the days of such enforcers having big impacts are gone... Homer and the other GMs obviously disagree, and they should know better than I.
i dont understand homer, until i get really ****ing drunk. then, i still don't understand him, but i see things from a "what can you do?" sort of perspective.

what im saying, if its not clear, is that homer ****ed up with shelley. i dont know if someone in the rangers organization got a BJ from his daughter or something, i just cant understand why signing shelley was needed.
