Then again, there's a reason why he's flipped between organizations so much in his young career and it's because he's not developing like people expected.
He also went from one team with cap troubles to another. He's not the best defenseman in the world, but I think there are more than a few teams that would still have him in the NHL.

I think claming him would be a decent move, actually. Plus, he's from PA, SK.
