Not quite sure i'd ever use that word to describe Urbom; although it's probably a bit premature to write him off entirely. He seemed reasonably decent offensively in his short stints with us, but coned defensively on multiple occasions by faster/skilled forwards.

Still, he might eventually find himself a role in the NHL, though i do remember some of the more optimistic expectations for him I think at this point i'd settle for him being a solid bottom pairing guy, although with our logjam on defence and Merrill, Larsson, Gelinas and others passing him on our prospect depth chart at the same position; it's increasing unlikely he'll ever get a real shot with us.
