He has done a great job so far and if the drama queens on this site would exercise a little patience they might just be pleasantly surprised.
Matt hendricks less than briere, twice the term plays 10 to 13 minutes a game, big and will bang and fight.
A much better deal than parros and more directed to an actual need.

It wasn't just clarkson/close and Horton available and if we had signed Hendricks even if people moaned its easy to see how he fits into the plan to get bigger and tougher, unlike shrimpy briere.
