I do like these sort of pickups as they're fairly low risk/high reward type deals. Longshots maybe, but hey...why not. Just so long as Gillis doesn't paint himself into a corner with too many big misses.
Other than that hit on the goalie I don't think there's been any sort of character issues with Archibald. Even Anthony was tagged with supposed character issues but I don't think anyone's bringing that up anymore. But he's still a project nonetheless, and both of them have the potential to be pretty good bottom-6 players. But that Tochkin contract's beginning to look like a real dud right now.
