I've been a big fan of this kid's style. I'm also very interested to see if McIlrath puts him in his place. I want to see if these two clash in camp. After all, that's McIlrath's job.

You often mess up other joints in the leg by putting off the surgery. You basically make the whole thing worse. You can even mess up the other side. It's not that uncommon.

Nice comparison

With the Girardi Side Bar

That said, he's a cheaper alternative then some of those guys who are still on the team and should be considered to move first because he maintains better cap flexibility and his game may still improve. A 25 year old defenseman with only 3 seasons under his belt, has room to improve and very well could.

I'm high on options available in Hartford and we've got two right handed defenders in Sauer and Sangs who I wouldn't mind seeing play which could make Girardi expendable.

This defense has a long way to go before they're sold, but they're young and I'm not willing to give up on the younger guys yet.

Now that we've got younger guys up like McD, Sauer, and now Erixon. I believe we should move him out for a high powered winger, but that's for another thread.
