Like with many of our average/below average players I think it's mostly an issue with expectations and them not looking all that good when given a role that is too big for their ability. I think Hunwick actually handles 20+ minutes better than most #6-7 guys, but he's still a #6-7 guy.

I've learned to lower my expectations when it comes to the goats around here (Kobasew, Hunwick, O'Brien, Jones) and don't mind them for the most part. I've been very disappointed with O'Byrne this year because he's underperforming in a big way.
It was more being surprised that one of the two broadcasters(Rycroft being the other)that actually tell it like it is pumping him up. He's been ok, but "coming into his own" is something more reserved for how Barrie has been playing.
