"Look a sight" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by lan deng

"Look a sight" = Nhìn dơ bẩn, nhớp nhúa và xấu xí.

Ví dụ
Whereas my sister will happily say, “I don't like that outfit, you look a sight,” and that is invaluable. If I'd axe-murdered someone, I could tell her.

"I get the late train (back) and no-one recognises me – I look a sight and am as rough as you like. I actually think people avoid me because I look like a bag lady!" Moyet told The Graham Norton Show.

"Truleigh was in the frontpack on her first bush walk when she was just two weeks old." She said they often joined their best friends, who have eight children and one on the way, for picnics. "I'm sure we look a sight when we pull up at a park with 18 children."

"Look at cross-eyed" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Riccardo Fissore

"Look at (one) cross-eyed" = Lác mắt nhìn ai -> Trợn mắt nhìn ai, đe dọa/chế giễu/chất vấn ai.

Ví dụ
The new factor here is Trump’s weaponization (vũ trang hóa) of the Justice Department to attack companies that look at him cross-eyed, Joe writes. That adds to economic uncertainty, along with the country’s growing resemblance to a banana republic.

"Noah Tyson said at the beginning of the year, 'I want to go undefeated this year,'" said Raiders coach Mike Wood, who notched his 200th win with the Raiders. "I look at him cross-eyed — I'm cross-eyed anyway — and told him that's a mighty tall task. For it to come to fruition (thành công, có kết quả)? It's not something I ever would've expected."

“He doesn’t just do something because everybody else does it,” Wagner said. “He finds the best possible thing and internalizes. He does not have any sense of care about what other people think about what he’s think. Where something could be conventional people could look at him cross eyed about … Trevor’s got no filter to what other people think about him or what they say.”

"Look for all the world like" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by 浮萍 闪电

"Look for all the world like (someone or something)" = Đi tìm khắp thế giới giống như ai/điều gì -> giống nhau ở mọi mặt, đặc điểm.

Ví dụ
They take their time reacting and adjusting to the changes in their environment, and look for all the world like regular people as they do so.

They look for all the world like stills from the latest film version of a classic Dickens novel. But these remarkable pictures were taken not on a Hollywood set, but 140 years ago on the streets of London, among the Victorian capital’s itinerant workers (công nhân lưu động).

WEST HAM look for all the world like a team in major trouble and I don’t think the manager is right for them at all. They’ve just been turned over by Crystal Palace and now they have to play Leicester. That’s not easy, and looking at the table they are right up against it. Things haven’t been right at West Ham for months. But watching Mark Noble having a go at his team-mates tells me there’s a problem there.

"Look kindly upon" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Louis Watson

"Look kindly upon" = Được đón chào, được tán thành hoặc được làm vui mừng; thể hiện sự quý mến/thiện chí cho ai/cái gì.

Ví dụ
Look kindly upon yourself as one who overcame obstacles (khó khăn, thử thách) within and without and made it successfully, with God's help, to this new year.

Another problem for conscience-ridden service members is that Trump’s unlikely to look kindly upon those who refuse orders to break the law. In November, Trump personally intervened in several military cases to pardon (ân xá, xá tội) service members accused or convicted of war crimes.

In what’s billed by local media as the “divorce of the century,” the chairman of South Korea’s third-largest conglomerate (kết khối, kết hợp) could wind up surrendering up to $1.2 billion of his shares to his aggrieved wife. Chey Tae-won has good reason to worry that judges won’t look kindly upon him: He’s already started a second family with a glamorous (đặc biệt thu hút) American-Korean internet sensation, not to mention his wife is the daughter of former President Roh Tae-woo. But it looks like this Hollywood-caliber split could have more repercussions in the boardroom than the bedroom.

"Look like a saddle on a sow" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Ben Mater

"Look like a saddle on a sow" = Như cưỡi trên lưng con heo nái -> Nhìn rất quái lạ, mắc cười và rất lố.

Ví dụ
Kealiher said the purpose of his posts in the aftermath of police shootings is to make both sides look like a saddle on a sow at the same time.

This is all being done in the name of selling stuff, of course—baseball thinks it can unload a bunch of these hoodies on playoff-mad fans and make a few bucks. Never mind that you’ll look like a saddle on a sow walking around in a DO DAMAGE sweatshirt by the first week of November, and maybe sooner.

This particular scene is briefly comedic because as he is running, his huge clown (chú hề) shoes are slapping against the pavement making him look like a saddle on a sow. However, the mood changes quickly when he finally catches up to them, and they are waiting for him and basically—to put in the simplest terms… beat the crap out of him.

"Look me up when you're in town" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Nitish Meena

"Look me up when you're in town" = Hãy liên lạc với tôi khi bạn đến thị trấn/thành phố của tôi.

Ví dụ
He waves back at me from the lobby (hành lang): “Promise to look me up when you're in town!”

It’s funny you bring his name up because to this day, when I see Ray Bourque, he just remembers the fact that I refereed in his first Cup ever — he’ll never let me forget that. He hugs me, says, ‘Make sure look me up when you’re in Boston.’ It’s a good feeling that some of these guys remember, you know. They were all pretty good guys.

Though the full complement of 1972 Dolphins aren’t regarded as angry old men, the “don’t look me up when you’re in my town, call me when you’re on my block” rants of Mercury Morris from 2007, which ultimately were parlayed into a series of Reebok commercials featuring Morris and other members of the team, cemented (gắn kết) the widespread belief that the ’72 Dolphins don’t want to see their 17-0 eclipsed with a 19-0.

"Look straight through" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Milada Vigerova

"Look straight through (one)" = Cố tình làm lơ trước mặt ai; vờ như không thấy/không nghe gì họ (nghĩa tiêu cực); nhìn thấu được ai (nghĩa tích cực).

Ví dụ
If they look straight through you, move your glance ever-so-slightly over their shoulder and they'll think you were smiling at someone else.

“There's something about Saoirse on-screen,” says Gerwig. “You feel like you could look straight through her, like you can see her insides and her brain working.

If you do decide to take pity on these poor souls, do so with a grain of salt. Do not stand there with a polite smile on your face expecting a thank you. Once these senior moochers (người ăn xin) pass through Market’s gates, they will look straight through you as if you were just another stranger in the cafeteria. Which you are, but you’re a stranger that gave them the gift of food, so the sudden coldness in this new, fragile (mỏng manh, dễ vỡ) relationship will sting a bit.

"Look the part" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Artsy Vibes

"Look/dress the part" = Ăn mặc/hành xử phù hợp và gây ấn tượng đúng với một vị trí hoặc vai trò cụ thể nào đó.

Ví dụ
Going for a classy collab, Love Island launched their own range of sunglasses with Polaroid to offer quality sunnies which still look the part.

If the man in your life is keen to be more sustainable, look no further than Elvis & Kresse, a circular economy brand that upcycles London firehose (vòi rồng) and Burberry leather scraps into stylish new pieces for men and women, including card holders, belts, travel cases, cuff links and more - with a range of goods for under £50. Bonus: the firehose items are red, for anyone who wants their Valentine's gift for him to look the part.

A brief snippet (đoạn trích ngắn) of gameplay footage for Godfall has now leaked online. The small clip initially appeared on Reddit and appears to be taken from an internal trailer at Counterplay Games that was shown at the beginning of 2019. This could be the first six seconds of PS5 footage we've seen, or it might simply be captured from the PC version of the game. Either way, the use of flashy effects (hiệu ứng lóe sáng) and impressive lighting certainly look the part, and it offers a hint (gợi ý, nói bóng gió) of Godfall's presumably weighty melee combat. You can watch the footage here.

"Look through a millstone" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Mathieu Turle

"Look through a millstone" = Có ánh mắt xuyên cả đá cối xay -> Chỉ khả năng phi lý/khác thường và không thực.

Ví dụ
She wishes she could look through a millstone and fly into the sky. How daydreamlike (có vẽ hão huyền) she is!

He said that he has a supernatural power (năng lực siêu nhiên) that looks through a millstone. NEVER trust in him!

She's not honest so much, so be careful about what she says like she can look through a millstone or something like that.

"Fall into oblivion" nghĩa là gì?

Chẳng ai nhớ đến tui :(( Photo by: Fabrizio Verrecchia on Unsplash

"Fall into oblivion" = rơi vào quên lãng -> nghĩa là không được ai biết đến, nhớ tới, nghĩa khác là hoàn toàn bất tỉnh.

Ví dụ
It brings back memories and I think it is worth framing. No one from the north can see this without a little tugging (giật) of the heart strings, even in this most Canadianised home. Thank you and please keep up the good work. Do not let our heritage (di sản) fall into oblivion.

We should develop (phát triển) useful projects and practical activities to reproduce spaces for traditional culture to live and create favourable conditions for young people to learn. Conservation work only focuses on keeping historical values. If its living space is lost, traditional music will fall into oblivion.

Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper are too talented for the Falcons to fall into oblivion. It's a testament (là chứng cứ rõ ràng) to Jones' dominance that his pace of 91 receptions and 1,280 yards would mark his lowest total in receptions since 2017 and yards since 2013.

"Look to laurels" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Allie Smith

"Look to (one's) laurels" = Chỉ ngắm nhìn vòng nguyệt quế của mình -> lưu tâm bảo vệ vinh dự đã đạt được; phòng ngừa kẻ địch.

Ví dụ
The basic take-away from this new research is that incumbent equipment providers are going to have to look to their laurels and lower prices if thay want to retain market share.

She recently appeared in a bizarre (kỳ quái, kỳ dị) YouTube video with the New York skyline in the background. It looked as if she was auditioning for the old David Letterman show. The current king of late-night TV in America, Britain’s James Corden, might have to look to his laurels.

Indeed, the publication seemed more interested in domestic rivalries (sự cạnh tranh, đua tài) than competition from abroad. “Other features which stood out very markedly were the prominence of Yorkshire tool makers and the paucity of exhibits from the neighbouring county, Lancashire,” it remarked. “A pronounced change has come over the comparative positions in the machine tool industry of these two counties during the last few years, and it is high time that Lancashire began to look to her laurels.”

Miền Nam hy sinh vì điều gì?

shared from fb nguyễn bá quỳnh,
Sau sai lầm chết người của Kennedy (trả giá bằng chính mạng sống của mình - quả báo) năm 1963, Năm 1969 Nixon đã có ý định abandon Miền Nam, vấn đề chỉ là thời gian - trích từ sách cụ Lý. Cụ còn bảo miền Nam hy sinh vì sự thịnh vượng của Đông Nam Á 🙂

"Juice joint" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Sérgio Alves Santos on Unsplash

"Juice joint" nghĩa là một cơ sở bán rượu; lời nói suông.

Ví dụ
Attendees assumed the roles of party goers at a swanky speakeasy called The Juice Joint. After the murder of mob boss Notorious Nick, guests pieced together clues they got from interacting with the other characters.

You’ll have to use the Tompkins County Public Library’s “secret door” for entrance to this juice joint. For one night in October, the library will transform into a 1920s speakeasy with music, craft cocktails, treats and games from the era.

Jan. 31, 7-9 p.m., the Indiana History Center at 450 W. Ohio St. is hosting Moonshine Mayhem: A Prohibition Party. “Bust out your best duds for an evening of fancy flappers for the 100th anniversary of prohibition,” reads the notice. “Join the spirited debate to avoid a drunkard’s (sâu rượu) fate or dodge the fuzz to find our juice joint.”

"Look its best" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Clem Onojeghuo

"Look its/(one's) best" = Vẻ bề ngoài tuyệt nhất có thể, như được chỉn chu thật đẹp (làm cô dâu, chú rể), ăn mặc thật đẹp.

Ví dụ
Note for grooms-to-be: Take it from a man who's been through it before. Your lady deserves to look her best, so as budget as we're trying to be here, you should at least give her this.

“We make every effort to achieve each bride’s unique vision, no matter what that is,” she said. Her Littleton spa has a crack team of estheticians (chuyên gia thẩm mỹ) and stylists who can recreate the newest, the hottest, or the most classic bridal styles so you can look your best on your wedding day.

We want you to have a good hair day. Nay, a good hair year. And to do that, you’ve got to think about making some changes. We’re not suggesting that your current hairstyle needs an edit, but in order to get the most out of it — or rather, in order for it to look its best every single day — you might benefit from a resolution or two.

"Make look ridiculous" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Melody Jacob

"Make (one) look ridiculous" = Làm cho ai trở nên ngớ ngẩn, lố bịch và ngu ngốc.

Ví dụ
To the Right, it is a given that we are funded by Bloomberg himself, or trained by shadowy forces to make them look ridiculous or violent.

But he wasn’t much good on the field. Tannehill had an often hilarious capacity for confusion. Quarterback (tiền vệ) may be the hardest position to play in sports because, more than any other, it can make elite athletes look ridiculous. Tannehill, 31, made it look harder and more ridiculous than just about anyone else.

However, Sheamus recently revealed that's not what WWE's creative team had in mind for him when he came back. The former WWE Champion told talkSPORT that the plan was to make him look even more ridiculous this time around. "A small mustache (râu mép, ria), and suspenders and my hair go over to the side…it looked almost exactly like Jack Gallagher from 205 Live," Sheamus revealed were some of the notes he received about a potential new look.

"Juice them up" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Riccardo Annandale on Unsplash

"Juice something up" nghĩa là bật điện của thiết bị, vật dụng nào đó; làm hoạt động lên, làm hăng hái lên, làm hứng khởi lên.

Ví dụ
Subsequently, Xiaomi and rivals (đối thủ) Realme, Vivo, Oppo, and Samsung not only launched cheaper phones with fast charging, but also amped up the charging wattage (điện năng) to juice them up even quicker.

The company is focused specifically on level 4-5 autonomy, meaning their radar isn’t intended for basic features like intelligent cruise control or collision (va chạm) detection. But radar units on cars today are intended for that, and efforts to juice them up into more serious sensors are dubious, Frankenberg said.

The vacuums (máy hút bụi) quietly clean for 100 minutes per charge, and self-charge when the battery gets low so you don’t have to worry about remembering to juice them up. The machine can easily maneuver (chuyển động khéo léo) from hardwood to carpet, making sure your whole house is clean no matter the surface.

Mình ăn Tết, hay Tết ăn mình?

shared from fb nguyễn việt hà,
Thứ nhất, có nhiều gia đình cả năm không dọn dẹp nên bắt tay trang hoàng nhà cửa dồn hết vào những ngày trước Tết. Mệt mỏi, lu bu, đầu bù tóc rối, vợ chồng cáu giận, hò hét con cái… đến tối 30 Tết, thậm chí sáng mồng một thì ai nấy đều đuối. Hết Tết.
Thứ hai, có những gia đình cứ quần quật, đầu tắt mặt tối làm mứt kẹo, gói bánh… vô tình tạo áp lực công việc cho cả nhà đến phút cuối cùng. Hết tết.
Thứ ba, nhiều gia đình giữ truyền thống cúng bái mỗi ngày (sáng, chiều, tối). Mỗi lần cúng là phải đủ món, đủ mâm. Kết quả là nguyên Tết chỉ làm bạn với ông Táo, rót nước, thắp nhang, rửa chén suốt ngày.

Thật không may cho những ai làm vợ, làm dâu những gia đình này, cộng thêm một chút gia trưởng của nhà chồng nữa thì chỉ có hát bài: "Xuân này con không về". Hết tết.
Thứ tư, có nhiều người thích sĩ diện, luôn sợ bà con, hàng xóm, bạn bè sẽ bình luận về mình: "Ăn Tết có lớn không? Lì xì có nhiều không? Phải trái với họ hàng thế nào"… kết quả là ném tiền qua cửa sổ hoặc luôn căng thẳng, stress, đóng cửa trốn Tết luôn.
Thứ năm, chính là những gia đình suốt ngày bày biện mọi thứ ra để tiếp khách. Ngày Tết, khách đến nhà chơi là chuyện quý hóa, thế nhưng cứ mỗi khi có khách đến thì lại hò hét vợ con rót nước, pha trà, bày rượu, tét bánh… khách chỉ nhấm môi một tí ra về. Sau đó lại dọn bàn, lau bàn, rửa ly, khách mới lại tới.
Thứ sáu, có nhiều ông chồng cứ lang thang tất niên hết nhà này nhà khác. Hết tất niên thì đi chúc Tết. Rượu chè bê bết, về nhà đầu năm gây gổ vợ con. Người hôi hám, mỏi mệt lăn ra ngủ... mất tư cách, phong độ đàn ông khiến cả nhà mất vui. Mối quan hệ nào với họ cũng quan trọng, điều ấy chỉ toàn là ngụy biện.
Cuối cùng nhưng chưa phải là hết. Cờ bạc, chạy nhanh phóng ẩu… cũng dễ làm Tết trở thành những kinh nghiệm – viết tắt của cụm từ "những trải nghiệm phát kinh". Hết Tết.

@. Túm Lại: Ngoài một chút theo tâm linh... cổ truyền dân tộc... có lẽ chúng ta nên thay đổi... Tết chỉ có vài ngày, hãy du xuân đâu đó, vui là chính và quan trọng là mình được nghỉ ngơi, thay đổi không khí giảm bớt áp lực với cuộc sống công nghiệp ngày nay.

"A kick in the shins" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Snapwire on Pexels

"A kick in the shins" = đá vào cẳng chân -> nghĩa là thất bại hoàn toàn (đáng thất vọng); hoặc (nghĩa khác là) hình phạt nghiêm khắc đối với hành động/cư xử ngu ngốc.

Ví dụ
Reactions to the Liberal win in Alberta were glum (buồn bã), with local media opining that the oil industry had “a lot on the line,” and calling the result a “kick in the shins” for the province (tỉnh).

The Black Shark 2 was only just released (trình làng) in March, so this is something a kick in the shins of those who bought it. The Black Shark 2 Pro isn't really a big upgrade, truth be told, but it does bring a few improvements (cải tiến).

Even the Liberal’s new plan to fund green solutions from the operations of the Trans Mountain Pipeline feels like a kick in the shins.

"Not know which way to look" nghĩa là gì?

Đừng làm cô ấy ngại. Photo by Larm Rmah

"Not know which way to look" = Không biết nhìn hướng nào -> Không biết cách ứng xử hoặc phản ứng như thế nào khi đang trong tình huống khó xử hoặc ngại ngùng.

Ví dụ
She doesn't know which way to look: The embarrassed starlet (ngôi sao nhỏ, diễn viên đang lên) seemed in a hurry. All smiles: The reality of her epic tanning fail had clearly not yet filtered through as she posed on the red carpet.

If ever an issue was designed to drive a wedge between (chia rẽ) the Great British public (washed and unwashed), this is it. Parents are rebelling and staff don't know which way to look, but a certain headteacher in Darlington is standing her ground. "Get dressed for school," she says, and she's not talking to her pupils.

"The community is saying that Dr. Patton was being used to do somebody else's dirty work," Lucas-Burke said. "I don't know which way to look, and it makes me nervous because I'm probably dealing with some of these same people. … I've had an upset stomach for the past week trying to digest (tiêu hóa, nuốt) all of this and not having any answers. People are calling me and saying, 'What the hell is going on?' I don't know what to tell them."

"My future looks bright" nghĩa là gì?

Đời đẹp như hoa. Photo by Rodion Kutsaev

"(One's) future looks bright" = Tương lai trông có vẻ sáng sủa -> Ý là sau này mình có tương lai tốt đẹp, thành công và đầy triển vọng.

Ví dụ
Emy Flor likes to say one thing to people who ask for her help in borrowing money so they can purchase a home. “Not everyone needs to buy a home to prove that you have a direction in life or that your future looks bright,” Flor told the Georgia Straight in a phone interview.

They want to impress me, take their own confidence and say ‘Oh yeah, I was in camp with Whyte and I did alright against him, my future looks bright’. They’re bringing it to me hard, no question. They’re making me alert and breathing new life into me, forcing me to work harder but train smarter, too. It’s hard but a good kind of hard – these guys don’t play no games!

Emilia Clarke played the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen for eight glorious seasons on Game of Thrones. Many people can’t imagine her in any other role and will always know her as Khaleesi. Clarke is a household name now and her future looks bright. In a recent interview, she revealed what she learned from playing the very formidable (ghê gớm, kinh khủng) and strong Daenerys Targaryen.

"Not in Kansas anymore" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: madeleine ragsdale on Unsplash

"Not in Kansas anymore" = không còn ở Kansas nữa đâu -> nghĩa là ở trong môi trường hoàn toàn xa lạ, không thoải mái.

Ví dụ
We're definitely not in Kansas anymore, as the halls (sảnh) of the Las Vegas Convention Center pulsed with all stripes of futuristic (tương lai) tech.

You’re not in Kansas anymore, so please, make an effort. Most clubs ask that you come dressed smart casual, or upscale chic. That means NO JEANS or rips (quần rách), leave your sandals and flip flops at home and don’t wear hats or excessive jewellery (trang sức). Goes without saying, but wife-beater shirts on men will not be welcomed.

“We're not in Kansas anymore Toto!!” the Crescent City CHP office stated on social media. “Do not underestimate (coi thường) the power of this storm!

"Stare in the face" nghĩa là gì?

Mẹ ơi, ai kia ak? Photo by  Zach Vessels

"Stare (someone or something) in the face" = Nhìn thẳng/trực tiếp vào mặt ai mà không chớp mắt; đương đầu hoặc đối mặt với một vấn đề một cách trực tiếp.

Ví dụ
As the Proteas stare a massive defeat in the face, their coach takes responsibility and says his skipper isn’t retiring anytime soon.

If they lived amongst constituents, experienced more or less the same services day in day out, had the poor state of infrastructure (cơ sở hạ tầng) stare them in the face every day, would they require to be roused (khích động) into action by protests?

But any time I wear a smartwatch, I feel completely trapped. It's easy enough for me to just ignore my phone when it buzzes in my pocket and check back later, but when the notification is staring me in the face from right on my wrist (cổ tay), it's harder to ignore. It's right there. And on especially busy days where I'm constantly getting notifications from emails, texts, social media, and so on (usually during trade shows like CES), I catch myself staring at my wrist more than I ever stare at my phone.

"Steal a look" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Allef Vinicius

"Steal a look (at someone or something)" = Trộm ánh mắt -> Nhìn ai/cái gì một cách nhanh chóng, dè dặt và lén lút.

Ví dụ
With extravagant gowns (áo dài quá cao) (looking at you, JLo!) and sleek, sharp suits, these couples know how to steal a look or two when it comes to dressing up. Whether they’re at a red carpet event, an awards ceremony or an after party, these Latinx celebrity couples (các cặp đôi người nổi tiếng) sure know how to be the best-dressed in every occasion.

Imagine this–you just dropped the top back, you’re driving through the city and you quickly steal a look at your sweetheart in the passenger seat. Crystallized sun-droplets dance across your faces, while the sweet Los Angeles air billows against your two-piece silk garb (quần áo, cách ăn mặc). You just pulled up to the cookout, and are greeted by the sublime (tuyệt vời) scent of barbecue, and Arin Ray’s Phases II reverberating (vang dội, lẫy lừng) from the backyard speakers.

If true, there are some interesting implications for Hygiea itself. The asteroid (hành tinh nhỏ) would have a notably different composition than Vesta or Ceres and might resemble a rubble pile covered with a layer of regolith (tầng phong hóa) rather than a true asteroid. It’s not clear if these findings will persuade NASA to devote more resources to puzzling out this mystery; a dwarf planet (hành tinh người lùn) designation would definitely be a bump for Hygiea’s overall profile. NASA has an upcoming mission to 15 Psyche planned, so it’s possible that we might be able to steal a look at Hygiea depending on their respective orbital positions (vị trí quỹ đạo) when the Psyche mission deploys.

"Take a long hard look at" nghĩa là gì?

Test ly cafe đầu tay. Photo by  Battlecreek Coffee Roasters

"Take a long hard look at" = Kiểm tra/xem/suy nghĩ thật kỹ, thật lâu và cẩn thận.

Ví dụ
I seriously think #ThisMorning needs to take a long hard look at yourselves!! Samantha Markle slagging off her sister today for your ratings!

It makes no difference, though. Even if they win on Sunday, it doesn't detract (lấy đi, gièm pha) from the fact that United are such a distance off, they need to take a long, hard look at what's going on at that club.

Under former general manager John Dorsey, while several splashy moves were made to improve the Browns, the hijacking (vụ không tặc) of the teams future in terms of draft picks and depth were an expense too great. As Stefanski comes in and looks to right the ship, you can fully expect him to take a long hard look at every option, whether that be moving on from players currently on the roster, or acquiring players he's familiar with.
