Friendly reminder that Jake Bean could’ve been selected for free by Seattle.

Ron Francis is a goddamned moron lol

The second there were no side deals to protect players, he already failed as an expansion GM. The no deals other than Pitlick should have been embarrassing

Sure but I also would have added that it was “for Jones and a pick” going the other way, especially when the context is that you are saying the Blackhawks overpayed.  
 

IMO you severely underrate Seth Jones but that’s a totally separate discussion 

I posted what I read at the time. Which was: “multiple picks for seth jones.” This is a pedantic argument lol.

Seth Jones is a wildly overrated hockey player but he’s still a solid top-line defenseman. He’s just not worth “top-5 defenseman in the NHL” contract PLUS “multiple picks including a fringe top-10 pick and an elite prospect.”

I’m not sure it is. 

The king of scrupulous forum-posting doesn’t see how a specific clarification of “OUR pick” could be confused for.... our... pick?

He said he wasn’t sure he would trade the 29th pick for Bean, but you thought he would trade the 4th pick for Bean and a 3rd. 

I think saying you didn’t read it was very generous.

Yeah, he’s just bad at his job already. He had how many months (like 18, I think) to come up with a plan and did NOTHING.

The plan he came up with was sign Larsson and draft a bunch of a-holes nobody has heard of lol.

I’d like to think he wasn’t this dumb, but I feel like he pissed off a ton of GMs by overplaying his hand and thinking he could pretty much rob teams and they all just sat back and told him to fvck off
