To Jacket fans: you want Sanderson to stay? That's odd. That guy is a very streaky scorer,and he can have an entire season playing under his ability. Look at his career between 95-96 (?) Hartford up until MacLean got him in the expansion draft. If you can get something for him, you get it. If you are paying him to be a scorer but he's not scoring (plus there are no takers) you free up the contract. Personal sentiment towards a player should never get in the way of wanting to see your team win unless he's a HOF'er, which he's not. You can pick up any Joe Schmo up from Syracuse to "give it all every shift, really bust azz, and backcheck". He's replaceable at this point...

Cassels is Cassels. Lachance is Lachance. Richardson is Richardson. Knutsen is Knutsen. MacLean picked the wrong guys to lean on. If MacLean's not gone after this season or at the beginning of the next I'll be surprised.
