I laughed, but at the same time it's sort of disturbing that AV seems to have a pride issue where he believes he can take proverbial 'junk' other teams have let go for nothing and turn them into impact players at their position. Quite often, there is a reason these players don't even look for contracts elsewhere; much like Rome who could probably have found a one-way contract on a lower-tier team (possibly with more opportunity for playing time), but could not find Vigneault's warm-embrace anywhere else.
