No, you said, explicitly that you thought it would be worthwhile to trade Clarkson's rights. Is the chance to sign Clarky worth more than a 5th-6th rd pick to you?
You also made a point that other teams signed big players, so I made the point that you were ignoring the Zajac signing to bolster your argument.
If you want to discuss this further, try not saying team x,y and z did this, but we didn't, while ignoring the fact that we actually did do what those teams did. You just don't want to admit it.
No its not worth it of course. But again, thats not what i said.
But whole point is i think Lou "could potentially" be missing good opportunities by restricting himself talking to players 100% strictly after the season and not during the season. Each case is different and should be handled differently somewhat of course. But again by refusing to do certain things just cause you want to stick to your way, it could potentially prevent you having something good happening to you.
so yes we still havent had Lou discussing contract during the season (from what we heard and from reports supporting it)
zajac signed before the season, i assumed they we're talking before that and im really glad he did it cause thats off his plate now and he knows he has his top line center set for the next season. Not knowing if you'd get clarkson, elias + zajac could have been bad. But im glad of the way Lou handled that one. But it still doesnt affect anything that i said. Cause it's not about what happened with this guy and this guy, Lou actually has a great track record of re-signing his players. All and 100% of my focus is on the way he's doing it not setting himself in the best position and gambling a lot more than he has to. Thats all.
so basically i'm not ignoring anything there.
Could we get a mod to pull out the Sterio fights with the entire board section of this thread? I know I'm just as guilty as everyone else, but this is getting ridiculous.
nvm im done anyway. its getting ridiculous at this point. its fine that we don't agree but its another one that some are missing my point completely, simply useless to even talk about it more.
and to everyone im actually very sorry, i dont mean to be an a$$hole, hated or just to argue to piss off others. I just firmly believe in what im saying and most of my points are not coming across real well or we simply don't agree. We're all Devils fans here, we shouldnt fight like that all the time i figure.
