Hopefully added motivation to put on some pounds and strength, because if he doesn't he's going to get destroyed, even in "just" the AHL. Gonna need to play with people who can actually finish chances, that's for sure, 'cause I suspect he won't be creating too many for himself at the pro (i.e. men's) level.
Save the trade??? Habs dumped a huge cap hit on a dimensing player and picked up a 2nd draft pick in a deep draft. That pick likely will be in the 30-40 range as Flames core is getting a little long in tooth and they have no high end youth ready to step in.
