I'm basically saying i'm tired of Burke bringing in nothing players and almost never giving any of the kids we have a chance coming out of camp . If Burkes going to do a full rebuild then he should leave a few spots open for prospects like Kadri or potential depth players like D'Amigo . Enough of this half assed crap of signing stop gaps .
Name a time that Burke stuck a kid who was ready in the minors in favor of a vet? If you think Kadri was ready last year, then you have bigger issues.
Look at Gardiner, Frattin, and the time they traded Beachemin because Aulie was ready. If Aulie hadn't regressed by apparently 'expecting' a spot waiting for him, he would have played all of last year too.
No vet is actually standing in the way of any kid - but the kids have to outplay the vets and earn a spot - which is exactly the way it should be.
If Kadri can not outplay MacAuther - then he shouldn't be there. Period.
