He played 18 games last year plus 3 against Philly in the playoffs. Do you remember our schedule at the end of the year when he played? It was brutal. I'd say Despres got a REAL GOOD taste of how tough it is in the NHL, and he handled himself quite well. I expect him to be even stronger / better in the fall, knowing he's likely to get a spot if he plays well in camp and if we don't sign any FA D.
