If that's the way they decide to go he'll most definitely provide some stability. The point on the 2nd unit was a carousel. From what I can remember they used Foster, Mez, Gus, Gervais, Read and Couts there at various points in the season and I believe the use (IMO misuse) of Couturier and Read at the point negatively effected the 2nd units productiveness.
