So Seph's comment about adding size is valid.
Also keep in mind this: maybe Jeffrey's the next Moulson? A high scorer in the AHL but who hasn't been given his chance to shine yet at the NHL level for a variety of reasons? Backtrack 5 years and how many people would scoff at any proposal that included a 22-year old Matt Moulson, writing him off as "garbage"?
I thought PA Parentau was the next Moulson.
I don't go overboard for prospects who tear up the AHL.It's a nice accomplishment,but Isle fans have been there with Papineau,Tambellini and several other young forwards.
Also,I never said Jeffrey was garbage.I said I didn't want him in exchange for my team's 25-30 goal nhl scorer and that I'd rather have the isles own forward prospects(Nino,Petrov,Martin,Joensuu),getting open roster spots.
