I would love to take that bet.

He's not a defensive dynamo, nor is he an offensive stud. I'd say maybe above average in both categories. The year everyone raves about he was 6th on the team in average time on ice for defensemen. The followng year he was a huge letdown, and averaged 16 minutes per game! He then went to Tampa, who loved him so much they traded him within 15 games. He puts up one point in Philly and does next to nothing physically, and he's a first pairing defenseman?
