He's either done an incredibly job negotiating or Kroenke has him by the family jewels.

Also I hate to say it but 2010 might be the one draft year that Sherman didn't do so well with Silas and Rutkowski gone. And in most people's opinion 4th rounder Aittokallio may have passed 2nd rounder Pickard. Hishon suffered bad concussion. Sherman may have made up for it though with the Bournival/O'Byrne trade. I think he redeemed himself there.
Hishon was a great pick and he showed it the year after the draft, leading all CHL forwards in PPG (only Ellis had a higher PPG) and leading the OHL playoff scoring. I can't see how our scouts or our GM can be blamed for what McNabb did to him.
