[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Butler and DeCosta : I don't understand how it's a "rookie mistake". First, Chiarelli isn't a rookie. He's been at this for years. Second, most GMs didn't get this kid under contract. In fact, 29 of 30 didn't. If anything, so far (very limited window), Ottawa got lucky. Did Brian Burke make a veteran mistake? Here's a quick list, minus Brian Murray, of guys who made a mistake: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NHL_general_managers

This is my swan song on this conversation with you NAS, and Dauber, the two most difficult and maddening people to talk to on this board.
First you Dauber. Atleast NAS says something when he posts, what are you talking about? I'm going on stats? Where do I list a stat anywhere in any of these posts? And where do you get Butler is a bad character guy? He's one of the most humble hard working kids you can come aross, if you knew the half of his work ethic you would never question him as a character guy. I know, if someone doesnt wear a bruins uniform, they can't be as good at anything as someone on the Bruins, we all know where you come from on all of your arguments.
NAS, Chia's been at it a while huh, little over 3 years? Chia let these kids walk out of his backyard because he "didn't need someone like that in his organization". Butler had over 15 offers as I said above, so no it wasnt 1 of 30 gms who got it right (actually reports said the 3 other most aggressive contenders for his services were Pit, NJ, and Van, I dunno, 3 GMs who sort of know their way around the block, wouldn't ya say?). Congrats, you can count that only 1 team gets to sign any given guy, very good work. Your argument is clearly weak, as usual, if that's all you've got. I'm not going to play your game of running in circles on an argument until you think the other person slips up. Go back, read my posts before making your usual condesending comments, in this scenario you're not making a fool out of anyone, good attempt though.
