Attitude etc aside, and the fact he doesn't hit, he is a big body and displayed Kessel or better skills two years ago. If he replaces Kule on the 2nd line with Grabo and JVR they could basically have two #1 lines because Grabo would have to thrive with a 70+pt winger.
A plus player on a Caps club full of minuses and fewer Gvwy than Tkwy. It might push Kadri out as he is small if more aggressive than Semin, and bring back more of a traditional bottom 6 banger. It could work, but Burkes comments don't suggest he is after a scoring winger. The money could get a bit stupid though.
