    Jake, it's sad that we hardly got to know you. It just wasn't your time, I guess.

    For me Voskul will always be remembered as one of the training camp greats. Better than Rick Rickert, but not quite at the magical level of Andreas "Glinny" Glyniadakis.



    I will miss imagining Jake offering weakside help defense in some of my favorite imaginary lineups.

    He never sought the spotlight.

    He was content to let others shine.

    He was the wind beneath their wings.

    Unfortunately, it was just a numbers game for Voskuhl. How could he expect a chance with the glut of quality centers on the Pistons roster?

    He was a glue guy, and we have a lot of glue guys so we have to let him walk away.

    You would think glue guys would be stickier.
