I have no issue with that plan, but I doubt that view would be shared by many on this board if it actually went through. If we did sign him last summer, people would have spent the year yelling about how Immonen never got a fair shake, and how nothing has changed in the organization etc etc. Instead we leave a spot open and it ends up being one of our bigger holes all year.

As for Savvy bringing us closer to a cup, right now I suppose I would agree you with, but I think a few months ago I would have thought about our defense and not been able to.
