One could argue about how valuable many college degrees are that normal, non-athlete people get..

The reality is that the mere presence of a B.A./B.Sc. next to your name extends the jobs section in the newspaper considerably especially for low- to mid-level clerical work, regardless of what you actually learned there.

Wait, so Holland has direct say over who Babcock decides to play? So like, if Babcock states, "I'm not going to play Nyquist because Samuelsson/Datsyuk/bucket of pucks is coming back, so you should probably send him back to Grand Rapids," Holland can just tell him, "**** you man, play Nyquist because I don't want to send him down; besides, he's better than a good majority of the crusty, old, practically useless scrubs you insist on playing every night?"

Man, I never knew.

Holland could demote one of Babcock's boys if he really wanted to. He is partly to blame for this too. Or have you convienantly forgotten how he overruled Babcock and kept Smith down last season?

Maybe you should cut the sarcasm, and you'd finally be aware of the situation.

Who would Holland demote that's not on a one-way or waiver exempt contract? Remember how the new waiver rules work:

A one-way contract counts against the cap as follows:
cap hit – [ minimum salary + $375,000 ] Example: If Wade Redden plays in the minors in 2012-13, he counts as follows.
$6.5M – [ $525,000 + $375,000 ] = $5.6M

Oh, I'm well aware of the situation, and sarcasm is my coping mechanism.

To what end? What guys do you demote? How long do they stay there? Do you swap the dregs of the Wings for the cream of the Griffins?
