I think Bob just wants the rumors to die down a little bit. Rumors have a way to upset players. This team "could" make the playoff and he's right when he says so. But this doesn't mean he's not gonna try and give the team a little boost sometimes this season.

I think Bob might have bitten his lip after commenting that to aquire a scoring forward he would use his defensive depth. Media ('specially RDS) and fans were all over those comments analysing it under every angle possible. The rumor mill can't help negotiation for a trade, so everyone needed a cold shower. That's what he delivered this afternoon.

BTW, F- ? Come on now, you can fail, but not with a minus ...
