"Watson went home to sit, his value dropped and the Petes got stuck with a lowball offer for him. If they would have dealt him quicker they likely would have had a better offer. Waitig to the deadline when the player is sitting put the Petes in a position of weakness. He's not returning and you only have a few days to deal him. Do you want your team to go through that again?"[/QUOTE]
Watson went home after they botched a trade with sarnia and he knew they wanted to flip him, then a rumored deal also fell thru with Kitchener. ( I heard both were better offers than London)
Only then does London swoop in an d pick him up for 50 cents on the dollar
It seemed as much the staffs fault as anything Watson did. If its all true I don't blame him for sitting and waiting

Anyway it happened, thank you to the Pete's staff
