Two things about Flash:

1. If Sherman gets the blame for letting him walk, he should also get credit for trading for the guy in the first place.

2. While I agree his health issues are a major concern, and the fact that the Avs were better off not paying the hefty sum the Panthers handed him, did management even ATTEMPT to negotiate with Fleischmann and his agent? Yes, yes, I get it, his condition was worsened at altitude, but if doctors cleared him to play and he wanted to stay (his camp said as much, so take it however you will) then I hope management made some kind of effort. If they didn't, and I know I've been saying this a lot, it's inexcusable. We'll probably never know.
