The pro scouts lately have done nothing to give anyone realistic confidence. Everyone knew Kari Lehtonen was highly talented. It was a matter of could he stay healthy. His success is on the trainers in Dallas and Lethonen's willingness to change and develop new, better habits.
I can think of Goligoski, and that's about it. Who else have we traded for that sucked? Even Eric Cole looks great for us, he seems to be a really good fit here.
