Hey, they signed him, is what I say. To his credit, he hasnt been a prima donna and has done everything thats been asked of him here. Still, hed be much better in a more open system and not one where most of his offense comes from him having to grind along the end boards.
And there's a time and a place for everything.
SC playoffs, esp, deeper you are, you can MAYBE gamble your sniper to injury to block a shot to deny pivotal G in pivotal game,
But this loon of a coach wants it all the time.
And some of us wonder why others complain about the resulting injuries, like MDZ taking one to the ankle. wince. Ok, he's a D, some of that comes with the territory, but again, doing it CONSTANTLY is invitation for trouble, recipe for disaster.
