Till then, I'm not going to change my opinion I formed last year.

The DUI though concerning is a non-factor to me. As is the play in Europe. I didn't see the games, I don't know the circumstances.

I'll roll the dice with Pavs for the time being. I believe he's got number 1 potential, I'm willing to give him the opportunity to reach that in Winnipeg.
My opinion was formed last year too. I wrote this well before the DUI:

My concerns are:
He is inconsistent.
He regressed.
He has a history of poor diet and work habits
He has a history of not taking coaching well.

The DUI and terrible intl. play are more proof of concept than new evidence IMO. I don't read much into them though.

Yes Pav has upside and yes I hope he gets there, but I am not a believer and I really don't like his contract.
