Would the GM ever say he expected anything less?

Of course not. This is typical "creating competition" boilerplate.

Exactly.  He would say the same thing about Kevin Porter or Danny O’Regan.

Not all your 700k flyers come in with as much Junior pedigree as Lazar.  The kid can play but for whatever reason it hasn't come together for him.  Knowing that JBOT likes the NCAA route because it offers the team and the player more opportunity to develop it makes me wonder if he just got rushed in Ottawa (based on the pedigree and expectations) and a full year in the AHL last year did him some good. Ottawa plugged him straight into the lineup from junior the first 2 seasons and he was meh those first two years.  The third year really went off the rails and he didn't recover from that. Rather than put him in the A where he belonged that second year they just rode him to the ground.  I don't think he could have played in the A in what was his rookie year because of that stupid CHL/NHL rules about players under 20.  He had outgrown the WHL but wasn't ready for the NHL and couldn't play in the A.  It screwed him up.

I like the signing. If he gets it together we have a useful player. If he doesn't we have no commitment.
