Flames fan coming in peace who wants to congratulate for this pick. Got the chance to watch him in the 2008/09 and was really impressed by him and kinda surprised that nobody took a chance at him in last year's draft. Hoped the Flames would take him.
He is a solid two-way player, who is defensively responsible and can score. The Rypien comparison, however, is a bit off. While he does not mind to fight, he will not turn into a middleweight who can hold his ground against the heavyweights and he is not a really mean player which kinda invalidates the Cooke-comparison.
But as I said: great pick, I am jealous.
