Jason York to Switzerland
 
York signed a oneyear-contract with Lugano.
He played the last two season for you, what can you tell me about him?

Solid at both ends of the ice, does everything well but nothing exceptional. Decent shot\offensive skills, pretty good positioning. I think that he could be a star in Switzlerland. I am a little surprised no one took a flyer on him cheap to be a fifth or sixth defenseman, a role I think he could do very well in at this stage of his career.

I think I'd prefer York to Doig (who the Canucks have at camp as an invite) as our #6. He'd be a very nice fit on the right side with Steve McCarthy on the bottom pairing. York is smarter than Doig, I think, although Doig really adds a nice physical presence to the back end.

I really can't believe no one even offered York a tryout. Maybe he's not as good as my impression of him as an all around servicable 5/6 guy.

i agree nomore,i'm surprised no one offered york something..the guy would have made many teams better on their blueline as a 5th or 6th dman..and some of these teams roster's i look at he could well have been a second pairing type guy,who could have been had on the cheap...rumor was that toronto was thinking of signing him pre-camp.. him not get invited anywhere even for a look is a stunner

and another is bombadir...i know colorado was thinking of bringing him to camp,but i never saw where anyone actually did... would have thought he'd have gotten a look somewhere(maybe he is on some team and i just don't know it)

hell york or bombadir would have been a fine 5th -6th for most any team in the league
