True, I wouldn't mind a scenario like that where Tambo turns around and wheels for a player from someone else. We also have two 2nds this year as assets as well. I'd like to think that Whitney is worth more to a team then a 3rd or a 4th but it all depends on said teams current situation.

We have a lot of young players coming up who need to be playing somewhere, I'm worried that we're going to have too many prospects which leads to their development being stunted due to lack of opportunity and contract caps.
