One thing about Sacco--young players seem to develop just fine under him, so I don't think any added exposure to his general incompetence will make things any worse.

One very potentially upsetting thing that Chambers brought up: Did ownership/management decree the demotion of Barrie for financial purposes? God, I hope not. I don't think that's the case per se since if they really wanted to save $$$, they could just flip O'Byrne for a 7th rounder or something.
It doesn't matter anymore for this season though. Its a lost cause at this point, might as well see what we have in some of our prospects before next year. Gaunce isn't a terrible skater from what I've read, he would be better then Zanon and Obyrne at least.
