You guys paid allot for Westy but the guy can play hockey a bit and has more skill than your average 4th liner. He really never got a great shot to showcase anything more than his fighting under Terry Murray and I don't really remember him playing at all under DSutter so I think that given the chance he might turn a few heads.

He is a better than average fighter, not special but good enough to go with anyone and more than hold his own. He can skate a bit, not fast but not slow either. He is a smart two way player and good in the corners, not great but good.

I would say that his upside is a solid 4rth liner who won't hurt you anywhere and has the added benefit of being a solid enforcer as well. He can hit like a train now and then too.

You paid allot to get him but the guy is more than a goon and I think that you guys will be happy with him. Give him a season to continue his development with the team and he could surprise a couple of people a little bit.
