I agree with that. If Army only had hands he would be one of the better players in the league. I watched him miss wide from less than ten feet away so many times last season that I had a stomach ache. (and a couple of times at camp too)

Pirnes sure is playing well enough in game situations to make a good argument for him to stay. He looks good in camp too. He is a very neat skater in that he doesn't waste any motion. He doesn't need to pump his arms really hard the way allot of skaters do to try and build thrust momentum. I think he is a good player but would want to see him in a dozen or so regular season games before I made my final judgement on him. The thing with over aged Euro's is that when they play against allot of other prospects they look really good. Then they seem to become invisible against the NHL regulars. I sure hope that he makes it.
