No.

There were posters who were concerned that a compressed schedule,
with less practices, combined with no real training camp and no exibittion games,
would be too sudden a jump. The fact that it turn out alright, doesn't mean
that the concern wasn't legitimate.

And a year of ELC matters if we are a contender in his first non-ELC year.
Perhaps we'd gain a decent rental player with the difference.
