Now, given how they've treated every other player on the roster, I find it really hard to believe, but I'd like to wish it could be true.
Agreed. Owing to the fact that Despres has looked like he belongs... I can't exactly gripe about how the whole thing shook out. It's just... you can't help but think that the entire thing could have been handled much better. Strait is a player. Anyone paying any attention the last few years could see that.
It isn't surprising, though. Stuff like that happens when you logjam one position and one position only through the draft and FA. But yes yes... I know -- "BPA!!!"
