Agreed on Orton. That was a pretty obvious mistake.
Some of Cassels problems have been HC, staff instability and turnover. (another Piioli issue since he's failed twice at HC) He's never been superb, but he's obviously regressed and lost confidence since 2010. Haley and Weis got the absolute best they could have gotten from him and hes fallen apart since Weis bolted. Because he lacks physical gifts, he has little margin for error. He absolutely cannot turn the ball over because he doesn't have the arm to recover.
