Was going to post the same thing. Even in other sports, there's always a group of fans who have this idea built up in their minds that the management cannot be talking to numerous guys, but rather only one at a time.
With a guy like Voros, Sather probably has a very little to actually do. They all sit down in their meetings prior to free agency, develop a plan and go after each of those guys. Voros is not a big fish, therefore is probably receiving very little attention from Sather himself.
He should be multitasking with Jagrs, Orpiks, Reddens, Sundin, Naslaund, Rosys, Rolostons, Averys..etc agents on the phone...not this guy.
exactly, people just arent getting it.
Bluenote, im not walking out, im just saying why are we talking about this guy right now when there are HUGE holes all over this lineup? it doesnt make sense, and as a diehard, im surprised more people arent annoyed. Im sure the kid will be jus tfine, and ill love the way he plays and blah blah blah, but right now, im more worried about an offensive team that is depending on Prucha and Dawes to be your top 2 wingers, and a defense that has Backman potentially paired with Staal as your top pairing.
You really think signing Voros will change ANYTHING about their chances of getting any of the players you mentioned? Come on.
Yeah, I think a few people need to relax a bit. I'm sure it didn't take Sather hours to put this deal together. I'm sure there's plenty of time to make the odd phone call here and there between working to land the big fish.
