  1. This whole re-entry draft it’s a joke, no team is going to pick JAP or GBS for their last year money. Guys like Conrad, Wolff, Kovalenko, Hejduk have done so much for MLS, but they are older and not as good anymore. They will have to adjust their salary expectations drastically, sorry but that’s soccer and pure capitalism.
