That is more what I am trying to get across (minus the "hate" part). I know absolutely nothing behind the scenes concerning Galiardi, but there must be reason why he was benched in Colorado and then again in SJ (he was hurt just shortly after arriving in SJ, I understand that). Same goes for Stewart. He was benched/demoted in Colorado, traded to STL, then benched later in the season when his production remained stagnant and did not improve. The impression I am under currently is that Galiardi is not living up to what coaches believe he can be, as is Stewart.

How they were treated at the time seemed very... suspicious, but seeing how they are producing and being treated on their respective new teams leads me to believe the harsh treatment was not just coach being power-crazy and spiteful. Tough love? Who knows. Sorry for derailing the topic, mods!

Back to Holos- what exactly is his contract situation with the Avalanche? One year left? More? An explanation would be great and much appreciated.
