There shouldn't be a problem with contract space this year. I think we're at 45 with the Eddy signing (assuming Cousins and Mathers will slide, and all the rfa's will return). There shouldn't be the need for any Akeson+6th for future consideration trade.

I don't remember much about him from the Phantoms games I watched but I guess thats a good thing
Heart and soul type of guy from what I gather. Stands up for his teammates despite not being all that big (as far as professional hockey goes at least). I'm a little bit surprised they did this though, since we're already having quite a few defenders under contract who will play with the Phantoms. I'd have thought they'd given a spot to Roe after the way he played last year, small as he is he was pretty solid and seemed to have some chemistry with Akeson.
