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.
I could be wrong, but was Urbom not in a top-pairing, shut-down role for us? Doesn't seem like Gelinas has surpassed him. Merrill hasn't even played pro yet.
