Both players were getting cut by their respective teams and I remember Mac getting credit for it at the time. Not quite the same but close enough. Couldn't he have just waited for Middleton to get cut first? Teams trade low round draft picks for first dibs at players getting released ALL THE TIME. I'm too lazy to look it up but I'm sure Mac had at least one of those trades. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app You’re right, of course he did, and I’m sure most GMs have done it also. That’s not the point I’m trying to make though. What I’m trying to say, and not very clearly apparently, is that because of how bad Macc was, everything the new guy does, even a bottom roster transaction is greeted with “Ah, what a difference a real GM makes... Joe making moves! In Douglas we trust!”! Im happy we have a new GM also, but I’ve seen about 10 of these guys come and go. So I’m going to take a wait and see approach with him. Thank you and @Beerfish for being adult enough to simply reply with your opinion, unlike the other little girls who have to rush to butt fumble any post they think comes close to not ripping apart the old GM. Between you and me, I can wait to see how long it takes for them to turn on the new HC and GM. The know it alls love a guy who’s undefeated. 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
