It's just who he is, which really isn't his fault I guess. It's the expectations that come with the role and money given by the team. His contract looks great now, but nothing has changed about his role. We need a guy above or equal to him that brings the rest, it's been arguably our biggest hole for awhile, and is glaring now that we've shored up so much up front.
No argument there. This team hasn't had a true number 1 in ages. If Marc Staal some day wants to join Eric and Jordan, maybe he might be able to fill that role.
