A few times this year I've taken exception to the term 'Gainey's type of player' as we sometimes think he only certain types of players. Now though, when you see him pass on a player like Kozlov who from a distance seems to be what we need, I think that he will only acquire players that he feels have a certain level of character. He has only truthfully brought in 2 players, both on waivers, but I think that these 2 are examples of guys who do what is asked of them, and do it every night. I sense a reluctance to go after a guy with question marks about his work ethic. If St.Louis lose another game or 2, does a guy like Mellanby make sense ? I realize he is on the downside but he's the type of player who might be useful for a short stretch.
