You can be sarcastic all you want but Purcell had his shot.

You could also start with all those nice stories of Purcell sitting on the periphery scared to take a hit or the ones about how he never bothered to back check. Or how about the ones in which he never won a battle on the boards in his life?

Guy was openly talked about by the GM of a NHL team as a future top-6 player. DL specifically said he thought he'd be a 1st liner on the Kings. He got 91 games on the Kings with a whole hell of a lot of support from management and didn't get it done.

If anything the problem was that back in 09/10 Parse was suppose to turn into the top-6 skills guy making Purcell expendable and he ends up losing a whole season...
