No I won't...I never had high expectations for the guy and always said it was just a sideways move on Holmgren's part to fix an obvious hole that was created when he left Carle to hang and be priced high on the open market.

As far as being a game changer..my wish was not in a Paul Coffey way but that he would generate more offense than Carle did and not be a bigger liability than Carle was on D. That remains to be seen. In fact, his offense on the special teams which should be better than that of Carle may be negated by his more boneheaded play and less physicality back on D even if Carle wasn't some stalwart himself...
