Therefore the roster is full and Asham will have to play somewhere else this year.
Carcillo and Asham are very similar with no glaring differences, where Asham would be making less. Asham had more points and less penalty minutes (I expect Carcillo's to do gown next year regardless), despite both of them doing the exact same role. Just pointing this out so everyone's going in the same direction.
