Trust me. I liked the kid and it sucked watching him struggle. But for every scoring chance he had or set up, there were 10 times as many blind centering passes leading to odd man rushes. When your center is behind the net and his centering pass is intercepted, he's automatically the last guy back in transition, but with his speed, there was no excusing some of the plays he failed to make defensively.
I loved Dubi and was the first to hype him. You could tell even when he was in the Whl that he could make a difference.
But he had like a selfawareness that was bothersome.
