    I slot Patty into 3C immediately. He handled 2C when he was 20 years old ... he will be fine, and significantly better than Laughton. Patty is wasted as a 4C and needs to be in a scoring role.

    Good point here ... Not sure how this works without trading Ghost ... Hagg is way too cost effective to move at this point, and we play much better AV system mandated defense with Hagg

    It took Laughton 5.5 seasons to get to the point total Patty has in 2; and he was recovering from a botched sports hernia surgery ... I am shocked you canít see Patty as what he is, a high end 3C
