I wonder if a team will take a chance on him. He's actually good a pretty good game when he's on: hits, has a hard shot, skates well. His problems seem to be hockey sense and inconsistency. Hockey sense might always be an issue, but with the right coach perhaps the inconsistency can be fixed.
Have to think a lot of teams will claim a guy that scored 24 goals last season. I don't think there's any chance he'd fall to the Pens. I probably would take a flier on him if he did though. He's a right-handed RW which we could use. I'd drop Steve MacIntyre for him since it doesn't seem like we're going to use him much anyway. I know some prefer to keep around an enforcer, but it just doesn't seem like Bylsma cares to use those guys and other players like Asham and Engelland can do the job somewhat.
