All GMs make mistakes. Fortunately, all of the questionable 2012 contracts (sans that of Tootoo, who could be bought out if necessary) will expire this summer, as will that of Cleary.
but how the f*** do you make a mistake an entire fanbase can see before hand?
Sortof off topic but ive been checking out Tomas Jurco n the kid looks insane. Only 2 pts behind Nyquist on the griffins. Anyone have any idea when he'll crack the lineup? Next season?
Jurco was insane last year in the playoffs too. Dude seriously had the puck following him.
You people would honestly rather have Tootoo on this team than Cleary?
Shows that Babcock and management believed Emmerton and Tootoo were the bottom of the totem and I would agree with them.
Think the forwards will look like this in a few weeks
yes. Tootoo is a better hockey player than Cleary in every facet of the game. I am well aware of Cleary playing on the PP/PK but he is still just a blackhole of talent. He makes anyone on his line worse.
