Carbo has his part of responsabilities obviously, the stubborness of playing Samsonov and Kovalev together was stupid, and now Carbo who's suppose to sit guys who are not working but then sit a guy who was doing a fine job on a new line....tons of contradiction, and again understand he wants out.
But then he didn't help himself, he's totally overrated and now, from Mike Brophy talking on Team 990 this morning, has a 26% body fat, does say that he didn't took that opportunity too seriously and deserve to be voted out of the island.....
Would he better elsewhere, well yeah, but is that so hard? Would he be what he was suppose to be, no, 'cause he never was.
I agree with all of this.
I'd also probably tend to be somewhat vindictive as a GM. Just to really make sure no other UFAs want to sign here... no, okay, I mean just to pound home the message that I don't like attempts at having my hand forced with public demands from underproducing out-of-shape players... well, I'd love to assign him to the minors. Except then he might just get claimed on waivers. Hrm. Well you have to try to trade him to help the team first, I guess. I don't know what we'd get for him. If we get anything, I guess we have to take it. If nobody is interested or just wants to give us even bigger contract headaches, waived to the minors works for me.
