I'm not saying there's a huge market. I'm saying that if you want to target a "top-4" guy from Edmonton, you're 3.14x10 to the 1000th power more likely to get Gilbert from them instead of Whitney. And I don't think that's much of an exaggeration at all. Gilbert has been shaky and streaky all year for them, and costs the same (or more) as Whitney, like you said. That's all I was saying there.
