He's also a guy with 1 point in 21 NHL games and who has had no PK time. That "potential" is a long ways from reality at this point. I like the guy, and while I don't think it's neccessary with such a cap friendly contract to risk losing him on waivers, it wouldn't surprise me if he passed through waivers unclaimed. People thought Jonathon Ferland was similarly valuable as a big, solid hitting defensive forward.

And Huggy Bear Stortini... he doesn't win many fights.
