Secondly show me anything on the record that he has a poor work ethic. You wont find it. Because he doesnt. He works his butt off. that it hasnt translated yet is not causative to whether the effort was there. If he was hortonesque lazy, we would all know.
Lastly, Holy is 100% right. JM gambled trying to lock in young talent in this market. Rusty didnt sit out games demanding a salary. Its ridiculous to blame him for the salary. Almost as ridiculous as calling a 24 year old a bust.
Alexander daigle was a bust before he was 24.
