Why does JR tell everyone whats going on???

Recommended Posts

shouldnt most of the signings be kept quite?? JR told the press that he was going to sign a top level free agent but only after moving a contract... does anyone think a team is going to drag JR over a barrel knowing what is going on?? its just weird... why would you want all the other teams to know your plans when trying to clear a contract.. no ones going to give the canes fair market value now.....

No way signings are kept quiet.  Does not happen in pro sports?  Should JR be telling people what he is looking for?  Of Course he should.  He is telling the fan base, after a terrible year, that he is working to get players, that are needed?  How many companies and STHs are telling themselves, "Not sure if it is worth it".  Or how many sponsors are questioning the money spent for sponsorships?   One must think farther than the guy sitting up in the 300s who comes to this board twice a day

 

Player X is going to get "this much $$".  Especially at this time of free agency.  He is not giving away anything and he is not going to pay "Player X" over what he wants to.  Not to mention how many phone calls he has made already to GMs and agents.

The only time I've really felt that JR tipped his hand was when he put Jussi on waivers right before the trade deadline and established his trade value as a negative.  Saying that he wants to move a contract to clear space to sign a player doesn't put him at a disadvantage with other GM's.  That other GM is only going to make whatever deal makes sense no matter what.

JR for the most part is a straight shooter when it comes to information. He very rarely misleads you with what he says in public. Given that he doesn't always say what is going on and he is a master at using media to get his message out. I think almost everything he says in public has a calculated purpose behind it.
