Higher standards in that I went there and YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH
I see both sides of this one, but I've gotta say--hiring a professional that is skilled in handling large amounts of money does not equal not trusting your parents. My mom is my favorite person in the world, great at her job, and I trust her beyond any other human on this earth. That being said: she knows f*** all about handling millions of dollars (not to mention she can't remember where she put her own glasses half the time), and I would never place her in that position because she would feel terrible when she inevitably screwed everything up. Add that to the fact that JJ's parents sound like absolute trash cans, sprinkle in a little bit of why the hell would he give them power of attorney and you have one big WTF Pot Pie. Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?
Sad situation either way--hopefully he learns from this and moves on, but from the sounds of it he'll unfortunately be moving on without his parents.
'WTF Pot Pie' -
To answer your question, I guess I'd trust...Pat Brisson. The agent he stupidly fired, but who nevertheless seems to managing Crosby, Kane, and Toews just fine. Johnson was duped, in large part because he's dumb, and easily duped it seems.
That right there is what leaves me scratching my head...Obviously JJ isn't the brightest guy on the planet, nor are his parents.
