From the article,
“We think that there is some potential that has yet to be tapped into. He is a player that our scouting staff has been enamored with because of his size. Every once in a while we see a glimpse of something there. He will be a little bit of a project prospect right now, but we feel because of his age and size that he is a player worth taking a chance on.”
I would tend to agree with Holmgren on these points. Chouinard's had a couple cups of coffee with the Flyers as well as the Phantoms and never amounted to anything. I think McLeod has shown glimpses and if there's any minor league system that can make something out of nothing, it's ours. He's a bit bigger (understatement) and a bit younger, which helps. Maybe the trade will give him a bit of a kick in the behind... or else John Stevens will.
I'm not saying it's a great deal or anything, but it's not a bad trade and I would have made that deal if it was proposed to me. I would think most of us would have as well.
