In response to Drewski5's comment:
Do you not like PC? I noticed that you put "genius" in quotes on page 1. I noted it because you are one of my favorite posters on this board.
Side note: I really love BsLegions take. This would have been worse if it happened on the deadline.
I have no problem with PC. But to suggest he played this perfectly does not jive with all the evidence coming out, and PC's own testimony at the presser, that shows he was duped. That's all.
I put genious in quotations because some on these boards describe him as such which is kind of going overboard. This was an unfortunate event but let's not sugar coat it or cook up some obviously false narratives as to what happened.
Agreed. And i apologized in a previous post.
I was wrong to give PC credit for playing this well. Maybe becasue the two offers were close, PC deserves credit for making an offer that was close to market value...But in any case, this isnt somethign that will go on his resume.
I do still disagree; however, that Iginla forced Cal to take an offer that Cal thought was significantly inferior. Thats teh peice that Ive always disagreed with.
Thats a slimy move on Iginlas part (considering he already made the list) and its stupid (deserve to lose your job stupid) on Feasters part for not even trying to get Iginla to realize that Iginla was not being reasonable.
I think its more likely that either
A) the offers were close enough, so he let Iginla decide or
B) Boston was never really an option. They just used us to drive up the price.
But I certainly dont believe that Feaster wanted to make the trade w/ Boston, had one that he liked, but then Iginla changed his mind last minute. Feaster then, without even a fight, turned around and took an offer that he considered significantly inferior.
That jsut doesnt make sense to me considering that yesterday wasnt the deadline.
