Eric O'dell

One of the more "underlooked" pieces of the polemical "Hossagate", Eric O'Dell has put together a somewhat impressive Senior yr in the OHL and has now signed an amateur tryout with the Wolves. I gather that he'll probably be playing bottom 6 minutes for them during the AHL playoffs, will be interesting to see how he does.
It will be a good indicator of how far along he has to go before he can start centering the Thrash's top 9.

Another idea im going to throw out there:

Since I have a feeling he's a pretty similar player to Rich Pannino, I wouldn't be too apprehensive to use him as trade bait coupled with a 1st round pick to land higher up in the draft. It also is a natural continuation of the Hossa trade, theoretically giving us a chance to ultimately "win" the trade.
