Aside from this being ludicrous, why on Earth should the Devils make a deadline deal for Sven Baertschi? What exactly would that do? How would that help us? You want to add a bottom six/borderline NHL forward to a sh!tty team that is nine points out of a playoff spot? Yea, fvck Lou, how could he not pull the trigger on that? Baertschi was the missing piece!
Seriously dude? haha alright. I understand damn well that I just have to mention Lou or the word GM and people will jump at me and just have the reflex to freak out cause they ran out of patience long ago. Thats fair. That being said, really often it's wrong. I got jumped today and i was actually DEFENDING Lou and whoever took it the wrong way.
I was talking about both GMs, was not even crapping on Lou. Not sure which GM it was that was on TV i think it was Bergevin and he was explaining how trades and everything were going down. And when a guy is made available, they have some kind of network or wtv and GMs have access to all of that.
So what i was saying is that i'd be really surprised if Lou wasnt aware that he was available based on that AND i would have been surprised too that Calgary would not shop him around and look at the interest around the league to get the best return.
It's only common sense really.
if he didn't go for it at all maybe he just don't like him or didn't see anything in him or wtv. We'll never know.
But believing that GMs are completely in the dark and would only know that a guy is available only if the GM calls him directly... thats a bit silly. And its based on that that i answered the other poster.
again, i like you but you really went full retard on that one lol i was really not bashing Lou. * hugs *
