. Despres is not intelligent or hard-working enough to crack a top-4 on a contending, barring a major adjustment in mentality. Lovejoy speaks for himself. I'd rather have an AHL journeyman than this guy.
Despres is young and still learning. Smarts come with experience and mistakes are perfectly normal for a young player like him. The work ethic is pure speculation.
I don't think Lovejoy should be playing over Despres or Bortuzzo or even be on the team over Strait but he's not as bad as people are making him out to be. How bad he is has been greatly exaggerated. He's a whipping boy so people look for every little mistake he makes so they can bash him some more. He was far from the only guy to make mistakes last game.
