you know which GMs are known for fighting for every million and ensuring their roster is maxed out with talent? lombardi and holland and chiarelli. do you know what those guys have that we don't? a friggen cup!!
how did wilson have all the leverage? because stuart said he would like to play in california?

stuart had actually all of the leverage, since he was an ufa, and wilson traded assets to get the chance to talk to him.

the only leverage wilson actually had was that he got to talk to him for 3 weeks before the free agency period that is all.
