Will Ferriero be ahead of Segal, Hrivik, Jean, Newbury, Mashinter, Haley in terms of order of call-up?
IMO it weakened an already weak Whale team and didn't add anything in terms of either long-term talent or short-term insurance.
It's not about the AHL. It's about the NHL. Ferriero can play an energy game while bringing some offense, where Kolarik is pretty much offense or nothing. That makes Benn much better suited to a bottom-six role. While Ferriero is having a down year with WBS, he's not a downgrade offensively at the AHL level.
