Not possible. As soon as it became public knowledge (broadcast loudly by me) that Tlusty landed the top line gig, he would be as good as gone on the wire.
I was potentially going to move him as a throw in in a deal, that would leave me with a waiver add (hence the Butler interest, who essentially would replace JT). That's fallen though now, so I will be keeping Jiri.
Still, I am quite interested in opinions on Butler this year. Wonder if he has had the S scared out of him and is now committed to sticking in the bigs?
