Same goes for Strome and Reinhart. The CBA forces Snow to develop kids by not going cheap for d-bag Wang. This is great news, fans.
In preparation, I'm going to have some guacamole for lunch, and since I'm working from home, I'll have a beer too.

To be honest, I wouldn't have minded seeing Strome, Reinhart and Nino for a game or two. A lot of teams are keeping young players this year BUT I just don't trust the NYI because they don't do it for the players or the team, they do it to reach the floor, even when the players are simply overmatched.

I think a game or two from Strome would help him understand what he needs to improve on. He's never played a pro game.

I think Nino earned a game or two just on his play in the AHL.

Reinhart, well, he's so young and still raw, and given the waiver pick-ups and Martinek, I suppose it makes more sense to send him back.

But considering it's Aucoin, Boulton, Reasoner, McDonald playing ahead of these guys, it's not like the NYI are committed to "winning now"

If he wants to grill ownership over the current team all he has to do is drag the complete lack of meaningful trades the club has made over the past three years (zero). You only get to claim "There was no trade to be had" for so long without sounding like a disingenuous liar. Wang & Snow have long past that point.
I think his message is loud and clear: "This organization is a joke and it $tart$ at the top. Don't expect things to change."

I thought there was something in the CBA about using revenue share money on PLAYERS, not to line the owner's pocket? Does that take effect this year?
