To all the people saying that he is worse than Cogliano or Omark and just takes a spot away from them:
He actually is a completely different player: Buffalo fans described him as some one fiesty, who is a bit like a pest. Maybe a bit like Brule.
So he is ways better suited for a 3rd line role than the other two, who are top six forwards.
Besides Burke (who definitely doesn't like small players overly) choosed him for Team USA over players like Gaustad or Conolly, which also has to mean something.
Besides IMO it would make quite a nice 3rd line.
Jones - Brule - Kennedy
Jones has decent size and Brule allthough not big plays at least like a normal sized guy. Besides Brule and Kennedy both play a game that is quite unsavory for their oponents
Of course I would also rather have an experienced 3rd liner, but maybe there is just no one available: We quite surely won't get Belanger, Madden or Morrison, who all will likely look for contenders and Asham also seems not to be on our list as well (Ryan Rishaug tweeted this).
Besides there is no risk in picking him up: We give him a try-out at camp and if he doesn't make the team, he gets waived again. Then he either is gone or we have another nice addition for OKC.
