Some info on Jim Slater, who I've been pushing for lately. For those of you not too familiar with him.

This season:
78 Games played
13 Goals
8 Assists
21 Points
163 hits (36th among forwards)
73 blocked shots (11th among forwards)

Faceoff-percentage history:
11/12: 54.4%
10/11: 61.5%
09/10: 58.9%
08/09: 53.0%
07/08: 52.0%
06/07: 54.4%
05/06: 56.4%

Brings grit, speed/mobility and face off powerness. Useful on the PK and has a pretty good release for an energy/checking forward. Consistent 10+ goal and 20+ point forward. Plays the left wing too.

Isn't a flashy name so I don't expect him to get much this summer. Guessing between $1.5-$2 mil. Should only hit the market if the Jets can't agree with him on a new contract though. Maybe trade for his rights if they can't come to terms?

ASSETS: Has great speed, which he uses effectively on the forecheck (and backcheck). Also displays grit, a defensive conscience and a little offensive ability. Kills penalties and checks skilled forwards very well. Can even get under an opponent's skin.

FLAWS: Needs to show more consistency in the offensive zone. Tends to play out of control on occasion. Lacks discipline on some nights. His all-out hustling style can lead to injuries, so he'd be wise to scale it back a little from time to time.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Speedy checking forward with great energy.
