It's never a bad thing to add character players to your organization, at whatever level.



agreed. who'd you have in mind?



the fact that we miss out on as many guys we have interest in as we land suggests GMMG has a pretty definite line drawn in the sand as to what he'll offer any particular UDFA.

so far he hasn't over committed in cap hit or term with any of the signings imo. I don't think there's any reason to be concerned that any college UFAs will hamper future roster moves because of their cap hit.

I would be interested to see what Julien Sprunger would do over here, he's 24 6-4 200 pounds, a very NA style of player and basically a PPG player in the Swiss league, he had an alright Olympics for the Swiss potting 2 goals in 5 games.
