PLENTY of better defencemen than Weircioch have failed to pan out. To say anyone who thought he might not make it "were morons" is pretty ignorant, IMO.
I'm glad he's put it together, don't get me wrong, but to say he looked like he was going to become an NHL caliber defenceman last year is a hard, hard sell in my eyes.
Another positive to trading Rundblad for Turris. Gave Wiercioch the push he needed, whether or not it was from his buddy Turris, or management showing faith in him.
