Ensuring that he follows the trajectory of Legwand's career.

Those of us that were around from 99-2003 have seen this story play out before, almost word for word. People bag on Legwand's offensive game, but he was drafted with an almost phenom level of scoring ability and no defensive game. Trotz played him with fourth line waiver-pickups and never-has-beens until he commited to the defensive side of the puck. He did so...but his offensive game never recovered.
