It doesnt look good on a team to resign a guy to an obvious discount and turn around a few months later and ship him out.
I think that would give other players the "will the same thing happen to me, even if I play well?" mentality. As JML played fantastically for us prior to his discussion, upon his return the spiral had already begun.
You mean the ol' cheesesteak chocolate-pretzel special?
I'd rather keep him around for another year or two IMO. I'm fine sending Gunnar for more physical help though, either up front or on the blue line.
