Unlike last week, there are no huge events in Timberdom to talk about, but there are a few odds and ends.
1) The biggest bit of news was Zarek Valentin getting selected in the expansion draft, then immediately being traded to Houston.
I’m not gonna lie, this hurts. Zarek wasn’t just any Timber, he was one of those guys who truly clicked with this city. He got married here, had a baby here, and bought a house here. He seemed like eventually, he’d retire here. Now, maybe he won’t.
Should the Timbers have protected Valentin in the expansion draft?
