You really have to look at the similar players around the league, Piatti, Valeri, Diaz, all similar expectation levels but veron isn't even a starter let alone a player that other teams fear. We tried to make it work but it's just not going to. Cut our losses and go after a similar player. Go get a 22-26 year old and hopefully he'll work out. The reality we can take these gambles cause we're in good shape. Muyl, Royer, Grella are all good enough to be starters so we can take a gamble on a player that could be piatti levels of good even if he fails it's not the end of the world.
I posted something in the first few weeks of last season when we were struggling. For years everyone complained how there was zero continuity from year to year. We used to clean house every off season and start fresh in the Spring, and people hated it. Now everyone bitches because we don't make any moves.
Yes there is a difference between continuity and dying on the vine at the hands of an FO with no one in charge, but fans will always complain.
I don't think we'll at least myself I don't want moves for moves sake I just want time team to improve.
Can anyone look at the roster we had against Montreal and the roster we have tomorrow and even pretend we've improved?
Right now we're banking on BWP and SK16 to have MVP esque seasons Collin to always be fit, Lade once healthy to keep his late 2016 form, Davis who yes played well when asked last year but now to play 30+ games at that level.
I love that this team is focused on local youth guys and I hoe Adams and Etienne have breakout seasons, I'm just worried we haven't improved the roster.
