animerules1x3 Posted November 8, 2008 Report Share Posted November 8, 2008 There's another mistake, thinking that we can't re-sign him... we don't know that so let's not assume. I didn't say we can't re-sign him. I say I wouldn't tempt fate with this one. Chances are very slim since he'll get more money than Markov, a superior D-man. Gainey wouldn't pay Bouwmeester more than Markov, and even less with all the other players he has to negociate with. Our purse is going to be pretty damn slim this summer. At least others understand it. Think what you want on that score, but fact is that Carbo really is giving plenty of ice time to his third pairing, by choice. He could play Markov and Komisarek 25-28 mins every night, reducing Bouillon and Gorges icetime in the process. Carbonneau believes in playing everyone. If you call this *****, then you mustn't really care, since if you did, you'd have noticed by now his troops' usage. In any case, all this discussion always was moot, since Gainey actually did his big moves this summer and stood clear from big rental rapes last yeaer in the Hossa sweepstakes. He wouldn't do something as drastic as what you daydream of. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
