He is not worse than every guy on the Phantoms. Don't get me wrong, he sucks at hockey, but I'd rather have him out there over Wellwood at this point in time. He can block shots and intimidate people. It may not be much, but I'd rather have that than 4:00 minutes a game than a guy who has seen 30 minutes or so total ice time in his NHL career. Like I said though, if he gets in some more games and shows he can hang, that is a different story. TBH, I'd like to see Z play well enough to stick around and put Nodl on the 4th line (as I assume many of you feel the same too).
