Matt Slauson was a good return on a sixth, I also don't think that's too far off the league average, it's such a crapshoot in those rounds, and probably more dependent on coaching and situations than anything else.
Just look at our roster.... it defy's most of what you say. Average? OK. So lets say we are average. We should be 8-8 then.
We may be but is that what a GREAT HC should be?
