Making the argument that Valentenko isn't the right guy for the PP is fair, although it makes a lot of sense to me considering he'd be there for one purpose and one purpose only: his booming shot. However, it's really unfair to dismiss him from the possibility of making the team in general.
Its not a lack of respect as much as there are smarter, more talented players in the organization, some of which play a similar game, but do it better.
