This guys huge!!!!

to BUF fans is he capable of playing as a regular #6 Dman in the NHL?


Mayby Isles want more competition in camp?


Im going to The isles open practice tommorow and scrimage on wed. I hope this guy is there..
No. The only reason he saw any NHL action last year was because we had like 5 injured d-men, including one or two call-ups that were ahead of him on the depth chart.
He's big and willing to fight, but he's a terrible skater and gets smoked in the AHL some nights. He can be a fairly solid shutdown guy in the AHL, but any team that has him playing regular NHL minutes is in big trouble, IMO.
