Anyone want to she'd light ok this doot?
Last season was his career worst. Only thing I can think of is he's Galiardi's replacement for speed on the line with Thornton and Burns.
Aside from last season, he's been good for Pitt, never having a minus rating and posting very solid scoring totals. It's a risk, but if it pays off it could be a solid trade. Right now, it's a big question mark. Not a good or bad trade right now. But I don't hate it. It's a "wait and see" thing, although a high risk - "moderate reward" deal.
Hopefully it was just a down year and he gets back on track with us. The idea is I think they feel he is way better defensively than Galiardi, but with the same speed and more toughness.
