The entire thing is full of suck.
It's sad that Maroon's departure is even all that big of a deal. A well-run organization would never have a player like Maroon as their blue chip prospect.

I generally find it laughable how much discussion some of these guys get on the board. Nodl, Maroon, Legein, Kalinski, Matsumoto, etc... all of them are just 3rd/4th line guys at best (and like you've noted above, a guy like Powe is both proven AND cheaper.) It's not like we have any quality. None of them are anything that can't be had for $1M during the offseason.
