hes an offensive dman. a pp specialist. hes our cam fowler.
im not surprised he was sent down. hes 20. hell be back.
from what i have heard, mcd would be the last of the 3 dmen who should be called up. kundratek- but hes another righty, vtank and mcd in that order.
yet here comes ryan. not sure i get this one, unless he has some kinda deal with the team that hell get the first call up.
would have preferred vtank get a shot. hes exactly what we need. tough, nasty, stay at home type with a booming shot.
instead we get mcd.
Valentenko may have looked better in the AHL where the players aren't as quick but his footspeed is the thing holding him back. McDonagh's feet are his strength. I think its a good choice.
On a side-note, the WhalePack are really being put through the ringer with all of these call-ups. Although I guess Williams and White should help them find their way.
