Hopefully Noebels gets the call to come up as well.
In the 3 games I have seen since he was called up from Trenton he has looked pretty damn good, I honestly think that he will end up as an NHL player now, last year I was not too sure, he seemed to be a kind of 'inbetweener', not good enough to put up 40-50 points and be on top 2 lines, but not defensively good enough to merit a place on a 'checking' line, but I think the kid works so hard that it means he will certainly get his shot, he is already a great weight, and seems strong enough to be in the NHL.
