Most of the Jacket fans on these boards will admit to liking most of his moves despite the team's record. You should feel comforted to have him in an advisory role, especially with MacT talking about the need to make bold moves (read: trade one or more of the young guns).
He's not talking about moving one of the young guns.
He said many times that he would be very reluctant to move any of them.
