That's all true. Maybe he wouldn't have lasted as long had he stayed. It's hard not think that it cheated his legacy at least a little, though. Highest numbers matter more when we get farther removed from the time that the player actually played.
If anything has marred his legacy, it's playing for like 10 teams in the last 3 years. I wonder where he'll go to next? Then again, he needs to be traded from Florida as they're not a Cup contender.
