<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Windjammer</b></div><div>That's what we're doing right now. Educating ignorance. Letting posters know why Anderson isn't a desirable player and no one is giving up anything of value for him. It was Montreal fans on this site, that perpetuated the Anderson will return a 1st and top prospect myth.

Many posters, other than myself, pointed out that it wasn't a realistic scenario, but were anyways shouted down with Montreal fans telling us Hughes had turned down a 1st and top prospect from multiple teams, so that means Anderson is worth more than that. We'd counter back with, without knowing what the other teams were asking Montreal to take back, contract wise, in exchange you can't say Anderson is worth a 1st and top prospect in a vacuum.

So, no matter what logical reasoning was presented it always ended with "Montreal had turned down multiple offers of a 1st plus for Anderson" so that is his value.

For more education on just how bad Anderson's contract is consider that he not only carries that $5.5 cap hit which is awful as it stands. He is also being paid $8.0M next year and $7.0M the year after in real dollars. How do you justify that? How does a team justify that to other players on their team looking for a raise? You can get a far better player than Anderson for $8.0M.

If you're interested in educating the ignorance, why not address the prison that made the ACGM and point our why teams works have no interest in Anderson instead of going after posters that say they doubt their team is taking him on.</div></div>

Ignorance is blatantly disregarding a players MARKET value based on your own PERSONAL feelings on a player. Hes wanted by GMs. Thats a fact. Calgary offered a 1st and Habs rejected it. Thats not 100% factual but there are trusted reporters who reported this. His actual money owed doesnt matter for anyone unless youre a poverty franchise. Youre grasping at straws about an actually decent player who has skills many dont and GMs seem to love. Size and Speed.
