I don't really care that you aren't buying this. I don't want every player to be a grinder, and never said that.
For JJ and a first, we get a guy who will have been traded twice in 8 months, has 11 years left on his contract, will not be effective at winger which we need (my opinion only), is a floater (my opinion), has not been a playoff performer, and is a risk both attitude and injury-wise.
I want nothing more than to be wrong and will be the first one to admit it when it happens.
