Great depth pick up for the Preds.
I'm glad to see Yip doing well.
Getting waived must've humbled him, when he was on the Avs he didn't do anything you mentioned. He'd look lost in the neutral zone, half ass fore-checking, and everytime he had the puck the cycle would be broken because he'd get a little love tap and fall down.
I donno what changed in him, but it seems like instead of him thinking he deserves a top 6 role he's realized he probably will have to be a bottom 6er to stay in the league.
