While I do agree with the point that Pengwin made about the team getting a lot softer, I don't really agree with the red flag perspective in this case. In Lehtonen's case a lot of what caused his career to derail was a lack of conditioning which led to more injuries which stunted his growth. Since getting to Dallas Lehtonen has been great, he's been on a new conditioning program that he seems to be following..and while I probably wouldn't describe Lehtonen as a hard buy, I don't think he's a guy that MUST be sold like some other players.
PS: I'm loving this discussion. I originally posted this thread as a joke but it's gotten very insightful.
