^This.^

Buff seems like a good guy and is highly skilled. That said, am unsure if this is a guy (at least in his current form) that we necessarily want setting an example of how a professional behaves for kids like Trouba, etc. Winning takes commitment, from one and all. Have said it before; I view Ladd as a consummate pro that garners near every ounce out of his abilities via his dedication to conditioning and diet. Buff comparatively seems to be just scratching the surface of his potential a lot of the time and it is frustrating to watch.
