I don't think anyone is bitter that the Isles took Aucoin. He's 34 and was obviously destined to play with the Marlies for the rest of the year. If anything it's good to see a guy his age getting a chance to play in a teams top 12 and if he doesn't make it he'll be back in Toronto (with the Marlies of course).

He is right though. Snow is building a roster with a lot of waiver pick ups on it. Normally that means they weren't good enough to make their first team, which is why it seems like such poor management. There are free agents out there who could improve the team, but either ownership or management doesn't want to spend the money to bring in these guys.
