I trust your judgement as many of your posts' in the Islanders board have been honest and knowledgeable. I hope he has a nice season.
I believe Snow picked him and Finley as 1 year (maybe more if they perform well) replacements until some of the Islander prospects are ready for NHL call ups. Snow has been criticized in the past for rushing prospects and now he is being criticized for trying to find inexpensive short term replacements until they are ready (also the Visnovsky situation is not helping, but again out of Snow's control).
