Basically what you just said, although he might play winger instead of center in the NHL. He's smaller than Malone and doesn't have the fighting element to his game like Malone does. If anything, he's like a more physical version of Purcell (with less natural offensive talent).
What is "good value" for Purcell though? Would trading him improve the team at all? I doubt it. (same for Malone)
On the Killorn thing. I think he has more playmaking ability and better vision than Purcell. His release isn't as quick as Teddy's, but his shot is damn good really. Cooper put him on a line with Angelidis and Wyman and it became a scoring line. Was crazy to watch actually. Grinders + Killorn = 2nd line for any other team in the AHL.
