I meant the package given up for Comrie in the wasted trade.

Its been reported today that Giggy is being shopped by the Ducks

Hes never been given the chance. Burke has and has failed every time.

Not now but he was and Clarke missed the oppurtunity to get him cheap.

If Burke doesnt do the job then we are no better off now and have screwed up the future.
I dont like the trade now and for the future. The only saving point is Hackett would never wear orange and black again.
Are you happy Clarke is wasting $7-8m on 2 crappy goalies when great players are available cheap, purely because of salary?
