Welcome to the world of politics in professional sports.

Barrie on two way contract, making 900K, since he is not waiver eligible can easily be moved to the minors without fear of losing the player.

On the other hand Hunwick, O'Bryne, Zanon, and O'Brien are all on one way contracts all making at least 1M, are waiver eligible and management doesn't want a player making 2M playing in Lake Erie.

Its a pretty simple equation if you ask me. Unfortunately its the wrong decision as Barrie is far superior to all of the above mentioned dmen. And those blaming Sacco need to direct their attention to management for signing all of these bozo pylon dmen "ahead of" Barrie on the charts. With 7 NHL dmen contracts its impossible for a AHL young gun rookie to make the team, no matter how good the player has been.
