    He cost us at least 15 points.

    Given that we signed Insigne, Jimenez and Salcedo in that window, it can't have been that limited.

    Don't see why we couldn't also have signed a starting goalie.

    I can seem that rationale… but Shaff is 22, not 28. The difference between a winger and an inverted winger is clearly teachable. we’ve already seen him drift into the box and score from wide left; he...

    We didn't need to. We have four open roster slots. If we were willing to sign Greg Ranjitsingh to carry three goalies then never play one, I think we could've made that one Alex Bono.
