This is a low risk move, but it still has a high reward factor, and I think it was a good move, especially when you look at how much responsibility he was given in the playoffs. The only real downside to this is that it's going to be harder to follow him in the NLA than in the SEL, since online streams will probably be very rare.
Agree with you on everything here!
