Seems damn good at FO too, and he'll likely only get better at it as he learns about centers in the east form Pleks and yes, even Gomer. (At least Gomer can be useful for that sort of thing, I hope.)
My question? Why the hell did Phoenix give up on him if he looks this promising? Anyone who knows the Yotes know why this would be? This seems a bit too good to be true right now. What's the catch?
Phoenix got Trotter who has top 6 potential, we got Nokelainen, who is a 4th liner, and MAY potentially max out as a third liner.
We got something more sure. They got the guy, who if he is successful, he is going to be more than likely top 6, but is riskier. Stafford added for defensive AHL depth.
