Right. Even then, it was too early for him. Albeit his first class and List A heroics, I think we're still setting the bar too low for newcomers. If we don't have someone exceptional in the reserves, then we might as well stick to the current bunch instead of going after the confidence and careers of our reserve players.
Besides, at this rate, we will never have a team packed with players in their late twenties.
