Something happened with Luke while he was here. His first season he was going to be our cornerstone, untouchable defenceman for ten years.
After that it was a steady decline. My old man thinks it was getting rid of Beauch that really hurt his play. Him and Phaneuf who came over at the same time Beach was dealt just never really worked.
I think the pressure may have got to him and he was trying to do to much, when a stay at home defenceman needs to keep his game simple.
I hope he works out in Philly where he will be under (slightly) less pressure to live up to his draft position. Always liked Luke.
Could have been worse, we could have drafted MPS which half of this forum wanted on draft day.
