from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
This is a lot different than I thought it would be,” says Hull by phone from Dallas, where he’s actually preparing for a week in Hawaii, something he had planned with his wife and kids before he was given the interim co-GM title Nov. 13….
“You see, I have a very set idea of the kind of team I’d like and the way I’d like it to play, and I guess you’d have to be an idiot not to guess that it would include a more entertaining style. But it’s damned hard to get that.
“Here I was thinking you just had to call another team and they would talk to you about trading a player, and you just went out and got this guy and that guy, and moved this guy off your team, and that’s what you could do.
“Now you talk to a team and all you hear is, ‘Well my guy makes $3.1 million and your guy makes $2.7 million and there’s 400 grand difference and so we can’t make the deal. I mean, it’s ridiculous. Making a trade is pretty tough.”
