Agree to an extent, but how long do you have to wait to evaluate a player and figure out he isn't going to be able to play the style you want to build your team around? Generally the quicker you can identify those things the better. He could turn out to be a shot blocking machine and Torts will have been wrong, or he won't which is probably most likely. Erixon might develop a more well rounded game than say MDZ but MDZ has a little snarl to his game that I never saw in Erixon.
