And how can you possibly say that if we let Mitchell walk, Torres would have signed here?
I mean, he signed a small contract to go to a contender. Chances are, we would have had to pay Torres more to lure him to our shipwreck.
Seriously, there's so many intangibles to your ideas that it becomes impossible to argue.
He wanted to come here and he said so and seriously why even bother signing Mitchell? I would rather give Torres 1.5 or even toss 1.8 at Belanger. Mitchell doesn't do **** on the 3rd line or 4th line. He is not a checker and not skilled enough to be on the top 2 lines.
BTW, we could have done this on July 1st. Who knows if Vancouver was even pursuing Torres at that time...

How are they same players? And like I said, Mitchell was not qualified and Burke should have let him walked and pursued guys like Torres and Belanger.
Not to mention we wasted cap space on Lebda. Tell me, who signs 7th defense men for 1.45 when you already have Finger at 3.5 who we are not even sure if he is going to the minors.
Some of you don't seem to realize that Free Agents have a CHOICE of where they sign..
Being a nucks fan, I hate Burke as much as the next guy for basically killing our prospect depth and bringing in alot of redundancy, (Minus Kesler/the Sedins), but if Torres wanted to sign somewhere else, there's nothing Burkie can do about that.
