Sure,he's been injuried and struggling but in my view, that's no reason to ship him out. ( not saying its going to happen) same goes with Flash, and although Kuli was drafted here, he was resigned. I just think people feel that it's bad business to sign players( not Jovo or Upshall because they can go) and then trade them a year after being signed. Again, I do agree with you and I know this is a business after all, but how would Tallon look if he did do a trade involving Kuli and ROR and then O'Reily didn't pan out and Kuli because a top Dman?? He would look silly.
We are not going to trade our whole team though, I think that's the misconception. We are listing a lot of players but obviously not all of them will get traded. If one or two big money players get traded, it's not a big deal.
