Bro.. Your post definitely implied that Schaefer only got the job by virtue of taking less money than Morrison. If that's not your point, then can you explain the intent of your comment?
Agreed. Something tells me that BMo also would have taken the $150,000 less to match the amount Schaefer is likely to be given if offered a contract. This isn't about
its about what makes
for the team. AV said after the release that it was not they were not impressed by BMo's play or flexibility, and that he also would not hesitate to recommend him to another team. The kind of play that he brings does not fit the role that they want filled.
MG wants size and grit for the bottom six forwards in a role where they are hell to play against, kind of like what the Blackhawks had last year. He pretty much said as much in an interview shortly after we got knocked out and followed his words with actions by all the moves he made this summer clearing out guys like Wellfed (thank god). I don't understand why everyone is in a state of shock over this its in line with the strategy the organization has been pursuing the whole off-season.
