Burgess is exactly my point. Have you ever seen him play? He truly does not belong on an OHL ice surface and the father is embarrassing the poor kid by insisting he is out there. He works his tail off and tries harder than most, but he is not of OHL calibre. I have heard many times that it has caused alot of dissention amongst the team, coaches, scouts, etc. because of it. I can't imagine Larry would do that however with Matteo. At least I would hope not.
Perhaps you know Matteo on a personal level and therefore are defending him a bit more than most because of that, which is admirable. I am just giving my opinion on what I see as a season ticket holder and a loyal fan.
