In defense of that comment I have to admit that hurt doesn't always mean missing time, playing in a game but having nothing left in the tank doesn't really help either.

I like York, but I just don't if he'd solve anything. The team's problem last year was scoring and playing down the stretch, something I've never been sold on York with.

He just runs out of gas....a lot. It's a testament to his character but I don't see him being a go-to guy on a team that wants to win. He just fades too much after the second half.

I just think the legacy of Mike York has long since overshadowed what he actually brings to the table.
