wtv im saying is not as much about Parise, and i know we havent lost that many players through free agency and i'm not saying i could do a better job than Lou. But his way of "not talking during the season cause it's a distraction" is dumb to me and no one will change my mind about it. Cause then you're squeezing yourself in a corner having like 2-4 days to sign everyone and you're missing out on other opportunities.
i really wish we could have went after Parenteau or something this summer but we couldnt cause we had "other players to take care off" (thats a fact i dont remember where i saw that quote but yeah). I absolutely dont care a single seconds of what anyone here think about this but waiting last minutes is never good in any form. It's not setting yourself up for the best results at all. And Lou as ALWAYS did things that way.
He's an awesome GM but he could be an even better GM if only he wouldnt be that stuck up sometimes.
but wtv if you dont agree just don't reply, im not changing your mind and youre not changing mine so there's no point.
22 out of 30 teams are finished by April, which leaves at least 2 months to re-sign a player. Sometimes a player doesn't want to be there, other times the $$ is not right. I suspect both were true for Parise
