It's amazing to learn, in retrospect, how good Gill and Scuderi actually were.
People also quickly forget how awful Scuderi was when he was younger. In fact, I recall YOU bagging on him continuously when I first got here.

Defensemen take longer to develop, and while it's a cliche to say it, I wish people would realize it around here. Even two seasons ago people were declaring Orpik a bust who'd never see top-pairing action and was, at best, a #6 guy. People wanted Shero fired because he re-signed Scuderi.

So, a little more patience and long-term perspective would benefit this board just as much as some good film study for the defensemen.
