5 better Saad grades than the one we settled for

Team Explanation
This posts serves to ask the question Why? Why would we move Saad now, for a pittance compared to what his value should be, rather than wait for a better deal closer to next season. If we had resigned Crawford, I might assume a FA signing was on the way, but as that is not the case, here we are.

            That's kinda of a steal for us. Zadorov is a good top 4 LHD. Saad had more value but too late...

            Blues hands down would never take that deal.

            Not sure why you guys keep Dunn with that kid from college aiming to be 3rd pair behind Scandella and Krug,

            Anyways, this post is fitting a theme.

            Dunn>Scandella. By a mile. If you want Scandella by all means have him, but Dunn is way more valuable to the team at this point than an overpaid middle 6 forward on our team.

            Saad had a modified NTC didn't he? Maybe this was really the best they could get from whatever teams he approved a trade to.
