Thank you for your trolling attempt, as it's quite flattering... but you fail.

Hon, when I say "another Erat", that's meant as praise. Erat was a very special player. But he was not a star.

You're putting way too much weight on his prior season, IMO.

Those aren't exactly stars you pointed out. He went from playing with Richards, Nash, stepan, etc to 'nobodies' in Columbus.

He has made guys around him way better, just like I think a guy like voracek could do with our boys up front.

Again, josi has not proven any more than voracek, and he need offense way more than defense. I feel it's worth the gamble. But have huge upside and neither looks like a bust
