We could have signed Paris Hilton and it would have accomplished the same thing.

He should never be in our lineup. If he is there are serious issues. May as well have saved the 600k and used it to sign a more determined player for depth purposes.

There was no point to this signing at all IMO. Not even for depth purposes as I would have much rather given opportunities to guys in the bottom six to step up into a top 6 role or reward some Hershey call up.

Wolski is NOT a top 6 player. Not in any world is he this.

His D and work ethic, or lack thereof, means he has no place ..I mean NO PLACE in the bottom 6.

Not sure why this is hard to understand.
He had 65 points just two seasons ago. Even if there's only a small chance he reaches those point totals again it's worth it for only $600,000.
