So tired with your pessimism.

Do you know what a rebuild is? You don't get instant success during one of those. You fail to succeed. Look how that helped with Chicago and Pittsburgh. They were horrible at a point in time year after year, and then eventually won a Cup. Just go root for the Rags, seriously. All you do is make this board even more depressing.

Because this team makes foolish decisions when it comes to the players. They've done it over and over.

If you read my explanation behind doing so (though it's now proven that can't be done), I didn't mean actually sending him down but "demoting" and "promoting" him on a day-by-day basis while alternating with another player. My thought was that if Monty was able to go skip through waivers and the other players was also able to they could switch them in and out, it'd be like having an extra roster spot, but not technically so.
