How anyone can say nothing wrong with this at all... I don't know. When there are better players out there that have experience with our system and fit in with our AHL team, looked better in call ups, and are much more versatile, this kind of signing and player is what breeds mediocrity. After the season he had, consider me thoroughly surprised he got an NHL contract.
