Mafki should have traded him years ago after the Montreal debacle...but he didn't...and Im just glad he didn't sign him for another year of Sasha.

Its over.
I actually don't believe for 1 second that he couldn't get a late pick. More likely he thought he needed Alex for our grand postseason to come. My issue is with George's management of this player for years, and on that, it seems we agree -- even if our ideas differ on what good management would have looked like.
