I'm not so sure he won't make the big club out of camp. Of course, like everyone else, I know nothing about him except what I read on his stat page on NHL.com.
But I didn't know anything about Glass or Rome when Gillis signed them either. Everyone expected them to be Moose fodder at first, but both proved to be usefull signings.
He's a big centerman who has some skill (ppg or so in the AHL) and his penalty minutes at least suggest some physical play. if he was purely a signing for the Moose, it wouldn't explain why he's been on Gillis's radar for so long or why Gillis was so aggressive going after him during FAF. There's only so $any phones and fax machines, so you expect top priority guys to be pursued right out of the gate, with depth and/or Moose signings to be done later in the week.
I'm expecting Joel to make a strong push for a full time NHL roster, even if just as a 13th forward.
