Why is this even an argument? If we want him then babs and Ken will go after him in the off season. We don't need rentals, if we did get franson it would only push o and march to GR and I like having them
That is one of the biggest mistakes a GM can make, doing a deal just for the sake of doing a deal. I'm not against trading or free agent signings, but I would take what Holland has done over bad trades and bad signings any day.
Moves can be great for a team, but the key to being a good GM is making the right moves at the right time for the right players.
You want to see a team that makes moves for the sake of making moves, look at the Leafs over the last 10 years for a perfect example of that.
Unfortunately some fans need immediate gratification (not saying you, this is a general statement) and if things aren't changed immediately, or if there isn’t a major move made, they freak out.
the difference is nill traded away the old washed up guy and freed up 4.6 mil in cap space.
