I could never understand the hate this guy would get just because he never put up big numbers. The guy is a tremendous player. Easily one of my favorites to ever play for this team.

I agree at least 98%. Even winning and losing hasn't always determined when we restart the carousel on the defense though. And I don't put all of the blame on DeBoer, Lou's the one that created this eight-D monstrosity and refuses to alleviate it.
