I'm good with the Hunter signing. I would have rather had Upton, but Hunter is still a huge improvement over Young in the field and bat (as long as he doesn't regress like his 37-year-old body should). Regarding Illitch having even more free money because of the lack of an NHL season - I hadn't thought of that but that's an interesting thought. I overheard one of Illitch's lawyers in the locker room of my gym a few weeks ago talking about the NHL lockout and he didn't sound too hopeful that there would be a season at all this year. That's coming solel from ownership side though so take that FWIW.
