If you have a team need - bigger, tougher players that can skate - and your current "prospects" in that category may not make the NHL (Desbiens, Pope, Bolduc), I think this is a very good prospect signing.
I know that if they play in the AHL the contract does not count against the cap, the nucks are still paying him $200,000 regardless.
