Just because Janmark made the Stars line-up (bottom six forward which the Wings have no room for and probably won't until 2025) doesn't mean Holland could have traded him for Jeff Petry or some other top 4 guy. We're talking about a player that was passed over in two drafts and then taken by the Wings and……wait……wait…..JIM NILL. In fact Nill was probably the only GM that would take Janmark in a deal.
Good for Janmark for making the team, that's on him for working his ballz off. I blame Holland for making that deal about as much as I'd blame him for putting Nestrasil on waivers, which is to say not very friggin much.
Also: how goddamn predictable was this thread?
I love this last line. Maybe it's the age of some fans who haven't seen history play out again and again, but certain folks often overvalue prospects to the point of absurdity. Remember, most cute kids don't grow up to be supermodels.
