But I can understand keeping Grabo if you feel you can re-sign him but MacArthur? Definitely should have traded him.
That's my take on that as well.
All in all I'm not a fan of tanking but perhaps we could have turned two assets into new assets and gain two roster spots for the future in the process. Maybe we could have used that picks llater to move up in the draft.
Grabo I would have traded if I felt I have only little chance to sign hin to a resonable contract. Probably Burke thinks contract talks will be fine so he did'nt sell him and I'm ok with that. Mac on the other hand is a player I would have sold for a definite 2nd with the chance of turning that into a conditional first without any doubt. Just not a big fan of his play (yes i know he's on pace for 20-25 goals again but still). But as I don't know what the conditions were I won't blame Burke and act as if I know anything better than him.
