Garth Snow stepped into a no-win pile of dog**** because there were only two outcomes for his team: either they look like morons for trying to sign someone who clearly didn't want to be there and causing him to stay home and unemployed, or they look like morons for signing someone who clearly didn't want to be there but he shows up anyways, helps then win a few useless extra games, and moves his team farther down in the draft order. There was no third possibility. End of story.

Yes, the rules are positively asinine, but that's beside the point. The point is that this was a completely brainless moves by a franchise that seems to be doing their best to be even more unlikeable from top to bottom than the gong show that is the Edmonton Oilers. Great company we're in.
The Oiler management would never display such an insulting move to any of the franchises in the league. Your hate for Oilers management is shining through once again, like the brilliantly blinding light from a supernova in a Galaxy far far away. Unfortunatly that Galaxy is so far from reality that it only exists in your mind.
