Is he perfect? Absolutely not. But at least with him there, you know he is not content with being bad. We ALL expected them to be better than they are right now. He can't help our proven players to score.
One big fault was to not get a PMD when trading Carter and Richards. If he had done so, we very well could have had
and JVR instead of Schenn x2
They tried to get him included in the deal but LA told them no dice.
