Not sure any defenseman on our AHL team is ready to go. Perhaps Pyett. Don't hear him being criticized all that often by those who have been going to see the Whale. OTOH Parlett, Vernace, Collins and we might as well include Gilroy--not so hot. Maybe McIlrath by the end of the year could make his debut.
Pyett needs to get himself out.of Kenny G's dog house first. He keeps getting benched.
