My biggest fear is Bergevin is so old fashioned he dismisses such things completely and expects the mystical power of "character" to guide everything.
I would have loved Kekalainen on this management staff.
I think Gomez is the classic example. We saw what his play was like and it was no surprise that he wasn't putting up points. But his microstats looked great...
The tail can't wag the dog.
