I've seen plenty who are far more overrated.

The Edmonton theory is that there's nobody to "protect" him and so that's why he keeps getting injured. I suppose there could be something to that, but that situation would not necessarily improve here.

I really do like the guy a lot. He truly is a skilled, near-PPG player. The problem is, that still only gets you 40-60 points a season.
