The thing you have to remember is that we're the 2nd youngest team in the league right now.... which plays a role in how many games we've lost.

You need at least a few solid vets on any squad to show the younger guys how play the game properly.

That being said I'm not sure that Barnes would be the best fit on a team without a strong leader present to reign him in when he gets out of hand.
