in the offseason...i said we'd be better off with kotalik as a depth forward and an extra million in cap space and waiving boyes (who would've been claimed...saving our owner some cash)
my "crazy" talk was laughed off.... as usual.
how's that van-roy combo looking?
I definitely agreed with you.
His $4m could have been used to add multiple additional depth pieces that would have made us a more complete team, but instead we opted to keep him as insurance, which never made sense to me.
Instead of waiving Boyes though (that would have been a little too extreme and would have looked terrible), we should have just flipped him for anything, whether it's a depth player, pick, or reclamation project.
Teams that lacked offense in their top six probably would have taken a look though simply because of his history.
