"I think that Hugh still has a chance to play in the NHL, but he has to commit himself to that end. What he is capable of as a pro is still dormant, but there comes a time when you have to fish or cut bait."
That's what lead to my question. Was it the injury or did Renney and Co. just crap the bed with this pick?
