Do you mean like stretch-armstrong expandable or like an extension pole expandable?

You want to take on 5.5 cap hit on that? Absolutely asinine. We need a functional Dman NOW not bet on his health. We did that with Whitney.

This also isn't a case of "struggling at times", it is a case of struggling for awhile and that was before the injury; which will probably exasperated whatever issues he had before hand.
Exactly, and like I've said before, if Myers was a player from our own system and he was given that contract the fan base would be calling for the GM's head and Myers would be the player everyone wanted shipped out of town, but there are still people here suggesting that we should give up assets to put the Oil in that situation with that contract.

Asinine is the perfect word for that line of thinking.
