Chris Patton and Development Players
What are everyone's thoughts on Chris Patton?
I missed most of the games in November when he took Macmillan's spot and by all accounts, he was very impressive.
He has the bulk that is sorely lacking in Kickert and Macmillan, who are both valiantly trying to play 5 but with a 4 man's body.
If you look up his college career, he put up some impressive numbers over his two seasons in NCAA Division 1. I'm no expert on that but I would've thought based on his numbers, you'd think he should have a solid professional career ahead of him somewhere.
This all brings me to my second question- what are the rules around DP's? I read somewhere they can suit up for 7 away games per season? (And obviously United are free to use him at home games as they see fit). How does playoffs fit into the picture- does that 7 games include the playoffs? Or are there another set of rules in play there?
