His knees were gone and he slowed down a ton since the first two months.

Winning organizations promote from within, the entire club mantra since 2003 has been to become a winning organization (like the Devils, Red Wings and former Avalanche), no point bringing back slowing-down vets just for easy roles like PK and faceoffs, you get Gomez and Eller to work on their faceoffs and bring up someone from the depth charts, like NORMAL TEAMS DO. And Halpern playing against Ovechkin? Briere? Gaborik? Crosby? Stamkos? HAHAHA.

Fans should let go of their attachment to players sometimes.

edit:

This Drury talk is stupid. The guy is done, be it injuries or huge-contract-syndrome, even at 500k he isn't worth it.

edit2: You can't "dominate the AHL" as a defensive forward, Ryan White didn't do jack in Hamilton yet he's constantly penciled in. Pyatt did/does even less!
