Well what makes it worse is that they kept him on the big squad at the expense of another young defender in Strait. If they weren't planning on playing Despres at least consistently, let alone giving him decent minutes, they should have sent him back down and not lost anybody for nothing.

Strait may not be anything special, but he's a steady defender which is more than can be said about Lovejoy, and losing him for nothing is bad asset management.
