Lilly's new contract is responsible for hindering the development of many of our prospects. not only has he bumped Big E, Meech, and Q down the depth chart (or out of town), but with his cap hit vs Q or Meech [slightest of downgrades, if at all, but been there, argued that], we're not able to call up Helm or Leino to fill in when Cleary gets an eye infection, or Franzen tweaks his knee, or Homer's back flares up. instead we've got a 7-years-past-prime McCarty, and/or our runt extra d-man filling out our forward lines.
i have less of a problem with his first three years here, and i know he's having a decent year, but i still think he's costing us more than he's earning us.
Q didn't necessarily have to be better than Big E, E was getting sent down no matter how well he did in camp. now, not only is Q showing how wrong people here were about him w/ LA, but Meech & Lebda are hammering home the point by stinking up the joint.
