So Ritola is doing about as good as Red Wings $2.9 million dollar Hudler and $1.7 million dollar Modano? Guess we have no buisiness throwing rocks at glass houses when we have our own "dead weights" that value almost $5 million dollars a year....
So, good job for Ritola so far.
Sure, bad job for Hudler and Modano for not doing as well so far.
They still have little or nothing to do with Ritola leaving, or people like you are trying to make more out of them having to do with Ritola leaving.
Again, Ritola's lack of show in the preseason was the result of him leaving.
Management's job is to field the best team possible out there, and Ritola didn't cut it. And spare me the bits that will eventually come from this that "WE SHOULD NEVER QUESTION MANAGEMENT!!!!!!"
And also spare that Ritola didn't get a fair shot because he was injured a bit. While unforuante, life isn't fair sometimes. If life was fair, he'd still be on the roster, I'd be a multi-millonaire retired at 30 years old and live in a 5-story mansion. Ain't happening though. Mgmt. can't delay the start of the season to wait for Ritola to heal up and get the same amount of games in and they have to make personnel decision to put the best product on the ice as possible.
A guy loses his job for watching too many movies on the Internet, he blames the peanut butter jelly sandwich he ate for not being crunchy enough the day he got fired. See how ridiculous that sounds? There's no correlation between the actions.
Just like there is little/no direct corrleation for solely blaming Modano, Hudler or any other player with Ritola leaving. You all wanted Ritola to remain here? Cool. Don't make inaccurate claims that blame other people for him not staying. That's the stupid part.
