Besides Frolik, I thought McArdle was the standout prospect at training camp earlier in the year. He just looked like a solid player. GR says he has 3 goals 7 assists in like 19 games, which doesn't sound all that great, but it is leading Rochester in points... Go figure... Anyways, he's a big body with a lot of speed and a good shot, don't know about his defensive game, but we'll see I guess. I'm just glad we gave him a shot when we passed on him and called up our sure fire prospect (Matthias) who has 4 points and is a -19. I think in order for the play hard and get rewarded mentality to work in the NHL, they have to implement it in Rochester.

Maybe they brought Matthias up to give him some sort of a spark, which is understandable, but other than that, I think the guys who have produced the most deserve to be called up. That being said, I like this call-up over a guy like Brine or Larman and am I excited to not see him on TV.
