I like the idea of bringing back good people who were former Devils and rarely expect the glory of old days to magically re-appear but in this case I don't because I don't think he's good people.

As for Lou, I think his penchant for them is simply the known quantity factor when it comes to character and team-devotion compared to bringing in a potential square peg for a round hole. There's been a few glaring mistakes in chemistry with people he's tried to incorporate into this team. If it's a close call he's always going to go with the former Devil because it's less risk.
