Well, you're not any more right or wrong that I am. Backlund has a lot of upside, and he's being severely underused by Hartley. You're really selling him short here.

As for Gardiner being available only for a packaged return, well, I'm not sure what to say to that. You're not the GM, you have no inside knowledge as to what Nonis is thinking, so don't speak like you know that as fact. It's very possible you can be completely wrong, and I'd wager to say you're fantastically off base.

But hey, to each their own opinion.
