I for one never expected very much from Trent Hunter. I'm not sure what anybody else feels they were promised about Hunter.
When Lombardi was signing Wilsie/Thornton/Calder types, I had no problem with it. We needed the warm bodies to fill up roster spots while the franchise was being rebuilt.

But here we are, 6 years later, and we're still signing warm bodies to fill up roster spots because we have no depth. Hunter is simply emblematic of the problem.
