i guess if i had an agenda, i would wonder about things that fit my agenda
I started a thread a few months ago titled "Weber will be the next Captain"
I picture Regier just going along with it instead of making his case and putting his job on the line for a player. I just think that is who he is. I remember Briere saying on Kiss 98.5 after he was awarded a 1 year deal for $5 million he said 4 years was never offered. So if they were only offering 3 years, Reger couldnt convince management to go for 1 more year? It happened with Lydman as well.
I wasnt in the room, so I dont know. I just believe Regier is not the type to fight for something he believes. Thats just my opinion.
Its not really about having his hands tied, I just wondered what Regier tried to do to get some of those guys signed. I dont think he has the guts.
At least we agree on Weber.
