    Cant wait for 2 more years when Hagelins contract is done. Yes I know he is good on the PK but sorry we need to get out younger players into the lineup and not lose them vis waivers. Schultz and Kempny gone after this season adn more younger players can fill those slots unless both can be traded…LMAO! NO one taking those salaries. waiting to see if Mantha is not only worth the salary but the price we paid to get him. Yes getting rid of Panik was good but losing Vrana and the picks hurt. See where Detroit also now has a player we once thought was a prize Barber.
