DR just would not work with him like he should have. That was the big problem. Lemaire clearly didn't want Sheppard or Gillies up with the team, but DR couldn't sign any decent free agents and tried to push them up early to generate excitement.
I forget is this a thread from 2008? Ah good times, i know you guys miss him.
