The money ought to come out of DW's contract.


Good lord. You hold on to things longer than my ex-wife. Let it go.



Did you ex suck as much as DW?

I think it's fair to say that every move he has made since the lockout to improve the club has been a disaster.



He's made more than his share of mistakes but saying every move since the lockout was a disaster is a bit much. Getting Hossa (that was after the lockout, right? ... too many concussions... memory not so hot anymore) was not a disaster. Even though he could not be signed, getting a good return for him was a solid move. I think smaller signings like Perrin, Recchi, Sim, Petro, etc, were also good moves. At the very least they were not disasters.


Signing Johan Hedberg and bringing Toby Enstrom over to North America have also been solid moves to improve the club over the past two seasons.

DW quote two weeks ago on Zitnik being bought out-

".... general manager Don Waddell said: "That's never been talked about. We think he'll be a big part of our future. We expect him to come back and be part of our team."

Is this Anderson flexing some influence or just more of the DW smoke screen?

To me, it just seems like the way DW handles things. He's never conducted business in the press.

My vote is for the latter. Probably trying to salvage any bit of bargaining leverage he might have in trying to get a few water bottles and a used jock in exchange for Zhitnik from some sucker out there.

Once Don benched him for the season, I don't think he ever planned on having him back for 08-09.

OK, this is the immature smart-ass in me surfacing, but anyone else want to take a shot at this hanging curve before I swing for the fences?
