you just don't get many kids with speed,grit,an offensive touch,good defensive ability and desire all that often...sure he might never make it due to being prone to injuries...but trade him and he'll come into our house as a 2nd line 20+ goal scorer is my guess

I tend to agree...I DO think that Upshall is a tradeable commodity...but only in the right circumstances. I do believe that he's our most NHL-ready prospect at this point, though.
