Revolutionizing the Thrashers, one important decision at a time.
UPDATE: Vivlamore has typed up the whole bizarre exchange with Dudley.
Q. Do you know if he has a preference, forward or defenseman?
A. He likes to play defense.
Q. How would moving him to defense affect your forwards?
A. If we don’t do anything else [signing-wise], than it depends on what some of the people do who come in at forward, whether or not they grab us. If we did something else up front, it would make it more likely that we would play him, at least for the time being, on defense. … [Alexander] Burmistrov, [Patrice] Cormier, [Spencer] Machacek, [Anthony] Stewart, [Angelo] Esposito. If one, or all of these guys, steps up to the plate it makes it easier to move Buff to defense or give him that opportunity.
