Carcillo has some upside The big question for me is how stevens will use him. Will he bench him the first time he makes a mistake? We all know he like to make an example of certain people, will carcillo fall into that group? I little confidence stevens and staff will help develop his game or use him properly. Downie, eager all got shipped out and they are all similar to carcillo. Not the same but very similar. Hopefully playing against the team that drafted him 8x a year will make him take a run at crosby every game Add the penalty league leader to the most penalized team, interesting logic. A second for 400k in cap room is unreal. Wasting a 6th round pick on mclaren who will never play is also a waste of assets.
Helps to not think of it as a 2nd for 400k, think of it as a 2nd to insure Giroux has a spot in this lineup the rest of the year. Sucks that that's the position we were in but that's the reality of it.
