The problem with Liles was that he was a decent player, but I always felt he was one tool short.
He could skate, run the PP decently, and he could pass, but other than that he wasn't particularly useful. He was a guy with too much offensive talent to be a bottom pairing guy, but also a guy without enough tools to really be an effective first/second pairing guy.
Once again, he was one tool short. If he would have had one other weapon in his arsenal, whether that be a shot, the stretch pass, size, whatever he probably could have been one of the better PMD's in the league. That said, he was always a guy who was useless if you limited his minutes, and underwhelming when he was out there.
I say a second was a decent and fair price for him, and somewhere I'm a little glad he's someone else's problem.
