I imagine he was was just waiting. The money was there, they spent it, so maybe if Regier demanded something get done then it does get done. Maybe it puts Regier's job on the line by demanding something, but thats how it works IMO. Being nice and just going along with everything is how you stay employed without winning for 16 years.
on July 1st he submitted the offer to Drury
the context is that :
- Ownership prevented him from making the offer in season
- Ownerhsip limited him to a 3 year offer to Briere the previous offseason (briere wanted 5 years)
i guess if i had an agenda, i would wonder about things that fit my agenda
As for aquiring leadership, I think there is a guy right now who shows leadership qualities. Mike Weber immediately comes to mind. Why not slap the C on Weber. He will be your #4 D, so he is important. He lays it on the line every night. He is young enough to play at a high level for 5-6+ years.
I started a thread a few months ago titled "Weber will be the next Captain"
