He plays on a big ice sheet here with the Gophers so maybe down the road things will simplify for him on NHL-sized sheets.
Awesome to have Boosh back though!
Could be one of those guys who benefit from a change of scenery. The fact that he can skate and that he is a good defensive presence is a solid foundation to build from. It's clear from his previous seasons though that he does have good puck moving skills. I'm willing to write this season off as a bad season. Happens to everyone at one point or another. If indeed Alt is a part of the trade, I like it. A young defenseman with good upside. These are the kind of guys that Terry Murray and Kevin McCarthy work very well with. Could be a real gem if given the time.
