You'd have better luck trying to bend a spoon with your mind.
He just sees it through a different prism. He's not necessarily wrong. My basic argument is that although the Bob trade became a NECESSITY of sorts because of the way he was handled and the situation with Bryz, it wasn't necessarily the RIGHT move because it was REACTIONARY especially given the fact we have two retreads as backups and a starter that still shows signs of inconsistency despite his franchise goalie status. Waiting 4-5 years for Stolarz (although I suspect they will fast track him too) is not the best situation for the here and now but at least it helps. Again, trading Bob stemmed from painting themselves in a corner but again what made it worse is that Bryz is not looking like the goalie that was advertised in Phoenix...
