I think folks are going to be pleasantly surprised with him. He's not going to wow you at all. He's just safe and solid in his own zone. I know it's just AHL, but he and Bortuzzo have been the Baby Pens shutdown duo for the past couple of seasons. He's good at that aspect of hockey.

I wasn't happy the Pens put him on waivers, especially instead of Ben Lovejoy. Strait's an NHLer, there's no doubt about it.
Mark Eaton II ?
