I know what your trying to say, but what I'm saying is maybe playing with the visor and having the eye injury is something in the back of his mind holding him back from going out there and trying to play physical and from getting into little tusles or causing a little commotion out there. Not being able to drop the gloves because of fear of re-injury the eye may be a mental thing and it may be another element affecting his play and career. He had the talent, he was mismanaged and that totally hurt his career.

Maybe he should be sent to the Wild where all former 1st rounders manage to play a little closer to their potential and have more success?
