If Winnik wants 2.5+ per year then I am fine with letting him go. The trade was stupid, but at least we did get TJ out of it, better than past years where we got nothing. I do think TJ will rebound to a 40p+ player.

You cannot make decisions based on sunk cost, and at the very least Wilson is a smart enough man to understand that. Just because we wasted picks/players does not mean we should compound the problem by overpaying.

I just replaced our entire wireless system because it never worked the way we wanted it to. We had invested $15-20k in it, and I could have dumped more into it to solve the problem, but in the end the smarter thing to do was to trash a 2 year old system and invest $10k in a new, better, system. It was an easy sell to the owners, and the new system works great. Sunk cost is a dangerous thing to get sucked into.
