IMO Danny Szetela got some very bad advice to enter MLS now if he really wanted to play for the Metrostars. He would have had much better chances to play with the Metrostars if he had signed now, but joined the league via the normal draft at the beginning of '05. By joining at the beginning of '05 the Metros, along with all the other teams, would be making roster moves, adjusting cap room and have all the deal possibilities of both the expansion draft and the regular draft. This would make a trade for Szetela much easier to manufacture. Entering now has made this situation nearly impossible. The Metros are in first and probably don't want to tinker too much at this time of the season, plus all the teams have rosters set that will need to be juggled in regards to cap and roster spots to make any trade work. I am guessing Szetela got some bad advice from the league and Adidas, who both wanted the media bump from having him join the league this way. If he had joined in '05 his story would have been playing out with expansion and all the other draftees. Szetela would have been a big story but not as big. IMO Szetela should have trained with the Metros and U-20's for the remainder of the year. This would have given the Metros a better chance to look at him and plan long term for their offseason roster moves.
