Naslund was once considered a throwaway. You favorite, Grabner, was once considered a throwaway and your point is?? Oh BTW, another favorite of yours, Volpatti was a throwaway too.
That's because Gillis is very generous when it comes to trading and waving and an idiot at acquiring. Most everyone on the planet except you and a few other Gillis jabronees here felt that that waiving Volpatti was pure lunacy all in the name of Pinizzotto cause Gillis had a good feeling about Pinizzotto. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
Oh yeah, we traded a struggling 1st round pick who was drafted 7th overall for a struggling Naslund who was drafted 15th overall. Trust me, the Santorelli's, Richardson, Dalpe's, Welsh's are not ever going to a Naslund and even Grabner for that matter. About as ridiculous as comparing Dalpe to Sharp of the Blackhawks.
First off, MG made a mistake by waiving Volpatti. Like all other GMs, he made a mistake. Seriously, are you telling me that Volpatti is next Lucic?? He is a fourth liner after all. As much as I dislike Sestito, I just don't see much difference there. At the very least, Sestito can dance with bigger goons.
Nobody is comparing Santorelli, Richardson, Dalpe, or Welsh to Naslund or Grabner. The point is sometimes some of those throwaways could turn out to be gems, like Naslund or Grabner. Some players take longer time to develop and some might never. In Dalpe's case, he is still young and should be given a chance before completely write him off. As for Santorelli and Richardson, they are serviceable 3rd and 4th liners. They were not signed to produce 100 points a season, were they?
Seriously RD, why can't you wait until the Canucks actually start losing before complaining like an old lady? The freaking regular season has not even started yet...
