Also, like it or not, service time is an issue. There's no point in burning a year of service time just because you want to push Yolmer out the door (or to a reserve role).
There is zero reason to rush him and start a service clock.

Folks, we're *not* playing for 2019. I know people are frustrated, and they want to see the kids, but this is another year of lumps. The organization should make decisions that best protect its ability to control their assets for longer periods of time.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
