I too think there's a good chance we see him again. Hard to see an NHL team hold a roster spot for an enforcer.
Yes, he does have a decent wrister and is not just a pure goon. But after a great start this year, his offense had come back to reality and he was moved back to getting 3rd line minutes in Peoria. So at NHL level, he'd be that 5 minute/game enforcer when he plays and that role is fairly rare now.
Some may wonder why his PIMs are down...no one will go with him this year. At 6' 4" 245lb, he's a truck out there and not many heavyweights in the AHL to match that.
So while I'm a fan of Peluso, I see Reaves as better in most aspects of the game except for the fighting.
If Peluso can show that his hot start was a trend upward in his play and not just a fluke, there's a 4th line role potential there. I wasn't thinking this year though.
