It's true that good ole Herb did not have a scoop on Lezotte. Even RDS had it on their site several hours ago (how could they know about it, it is not hockey related...):
He looks like a good roll of the dice. He should be invited to training camp. But, as Boulay's replacement, he is underwhelming. Boulay has proven he can be a star safety in the CFL. Boulay ran a 4.5 40 yard dash at the CFL combine (the CFL E camp has a slow field). He recently ran a 4.3 for the New York Jets (he might be a starting corner for the Jets).
OH, and he is Canadian, so that helps with a little thing called the import- non import ratio. Let us not even talk about the fact that he is a great ambassador and that he speaks both french and english.
I have nothing against Lezotte, a 4.57 40 runner, but safety in the CFL is usually played by a Canadian. he is not as good as Boulay, and he will take an import spot a Canadian position. The Als are weakened 2 ways...
How do I know he is not that good? If he was that good, he would be up for a cornerback spot (not safety).
