that's interesting, and i think quite a few posters are going to be wipping some egg from their faces.
If PG didn't even offer Wiz a contract, what does that tell us about his plans for the defense moving forward?
it points to them feeling Weber is going to take on a much bigger role and can be relied on if injuries hit again...
and it points to them only targeting a veteran Dman on the 1- year deal they offered to hamrlik...
I agree about the Weber part. After all, he was signed to a one-way deal at good money. Management seems willing to put faith in him. Perhaps in a couple of years he will be most of what The Wiz is, maybe better positionally, but less tough I guess.
I think the offer to Hamrlik was a courtesy offer, and the club did not really believe he would accept, due to the term. I think PG slyly hinted at that during his presser today.
