Again I love the double standards. When Hitchcock wasn't allowing young players to come up and develop on the backline b/c he preferred the vets it was argued that it's just the "way it goes" sometimes when you're trying to win now. So Clarke traded players like Eaton etc b/c we couldn't find a place for them on the roster to develop. It was about the here and now. I guess Clarke wasn't a dick but Holmgren is?

I don't necessarily disagree with the point that you want to develop your D men, it just that if you want to be consistent with your arguments you don't trot out the double standards consistently....

BTW..Vandermeer was similar to Bartulis when he was in the organization. Eaton and a number of young D men were traded away when we had Barber and Hitchcock in particular at the helm.
