Also, although a big man, he was not a physical player. I'm still not convince he fully deserve his 'lazy' tag, but I still have a biography to make on him, so we'll see what I can find.

If a player had the offensive resume of Drillon, alongside great ethics & defensive abilities, he would comfortably be taken in the mid-100's or somewhere along the line.
agree

you are very honest about your players, maybe more than anyone else, actually. i was just explaining to mb why drillon's reputation suffers and why he is not picked higher.
