Instead, we get 22 games of Grigs/Hecht/McCormick/Ellis.

Kevin Porter and Bryan Flynn displacing Darcy's actual roster players is an absolute disgrace and should cost him his job, and that says nothing about the horrible makeup of the defense under Pegula Bucks Regier, with offensive defensemen and possession sinks for days.

Oh, and he had 100% faith in the idiot coach who's impeded the development of the franchise defenseman and somehow made this roster of mismatched parts worse through how he deployed and rewarded his players.
Not to nitpick but those are guys Regier brought in as well. As for the defense, its the same group that played very well down the stretch last year. Not sure how its Regier's fault that Myers was such a mess this year (was out of shape coming into camp) and that Leo's game fell off the face of the earth. But I do agree with you on the 3rd line pivot comment. They were hoping Hecht could handle it.
