The pre-emptive whining from last night is even funnier now.

If it's the "good" Blair Betts, I'm down. If it's the half-broken Betts Flyers fans were talking about, I'm less excited. I guess it can't hurt much, at the end of the day.

I'am kind of loling. Didn't expect MTL to actually pick him up.

When 90% of this board wants a player, we never end up getting him.

Very very happy with this. I know there are some injury concerns, and that he's a LH instead of RH center. But he's big, experienced and an upgrade over Blunden at the least. He's a PK specialist who can eat up minutes that Pyatt and Halperin played last year. Cost us nothing, even if he doesn't live up to expectations.

Worst case scenario, he sucks and we put him on waivers. That's a low reward/no risk deal.


I think that's one of the first time Gauthier actually did a minor move that was extensively discussed here.

Which should probably raise a giant red flag.

But I'm happy with this move. That should also raise some flags.

These 2 moves made by Gauthier(Campoli and Betts) are something people always complained about late in the year when he traded picks to acquire such player. Now we have plenty of dept and keeping our draft picks, no one better complain!
