They all desearved a look in the bigs.

I know now that he's matured he will be given a very close look once the NHL resumes. Who wouldn't want a mean 6'4 defenseman who can get nasty and protect his players on their team. If that doesn't convince people than maybe his team high +26 will open some eyes.

I think this guy would benifit playing with Quintal they seem to be similar types of players who both happen to be French Canadian.
I agree. I mean if we aren't going to at least give him a shot, might as well use him as trade bait to bring in a center. I know on the Canes board in one of their threads I offered Rullier and Cammy for O'Neill or Vasicek.
