I'm certainly not acting as if Homer blew anything.
I'm totally fine with everything that went down with Brygalov. Homer's method has it's risks, but I'm glad we have a goalie.
I just don't like when it's implied that I'm crazy for thinking a goalie might become a bargain.
Yes you could say we might miss out on a goalie entirely, or pay a lot more, the issue is. There is NOTHING that would suggest that would happen. Why would that possibly happen based upon the number of goalies on the market and the number of teams that needed goalies?
Seriously. I'm not trying to be an ass or condescend you; but do you really not get the basic principles of supply and demand? One scenario was far more likely than another (scenarios being A-you get left with no one/overpay or B-you get a bargain).
