TSM, what is your opinion on this one?

IMO – Again, another pick traded away…sure it’s a 6th rounder but um didn’t we pick DiDominico in the 6th round??? Not saying that it happens all the time, but I don’t know if I like this move.

Yes Brad May brings grit, character, leadership and all that important stuff but he’s 37 and doesn’t fit our mold. Do we really need this guy? I thought that’s what we brought in Jamal Mayers for, which might I add lost us a 3rd round pick I believe…

Anyways, my hope is that Burke has a big plan to get us a ton of picks and prospects at the deadline this year and then this type of move won’t leave such a potentially sour taste.

I think it tells you a lot about the room and those vets in it. In some ways it reeks of despiration. Has anyone seen what the condition is? Does the pick move up or down and what is the trigger? I think it is probably a pretty stern message to certain players. I am hoping it is a pre-cursor to other moves.

I agree with TSM’s comment that it says a lot about existing vets…In my opinion, especially a guy like Mayers. Yes, it might seem counter productive relative to “the plan” but….even as we get worse to get better a) establishing an identity needs to start as soon as possible and b) consistent with Burke’s early remarks, we need to make the team a “safe place” to play for our kids….I don’t know enough about May’s current ability to play this role but…assuming he can still play the part, it makes more sense than one might first think.
