No, no. Volpatti was awesome but Mike Gillis
loves to make stupid moves, (there was even a little trade interest for Vopatti rumour has it, though we're talking 7th round picks) Volpatti was never going to clear, it was stupid move, as was Philly putting Sestito on waivers. This doesn't solve the toughness problem with McGrattan, Bordeleau, Rupp...kinda, Reaves...kinda and Bollig...kinda but more than Reaves in the conference. That's 2 superheavyweights and 3 LHW's (2 of whom spot-pick, I haven't really seen Bollig do that at least yet).
...but Sestito adds size and should keep Vancouver's fighting majors in the top 4.
