I had the privilege of watching him a lot in his senior year at UMD when he was on the infamous FCC line with Jack (Farjiestad) and Mike (Lake Erie-AHL) Connolly and he produced a lot of points then as well. It seems like he is kind of flying under the radar and nobody is really mentioning how he's really performing better than I think anyone expected for a college FA.
Yeah, he's 25 years old. He should be given a chance to show what he's got in the big boys' show. He's got a good shot and he's able to produce quite well in Houston. Can't be worse than Cullen.
That being said, I don't see it happening unless there are a lot of injuries. Zucker and Coyle are the first call-ups, then comes either Larsson or Fontaine. So he's 3rd or 4th in the call-up list, depending on positional needs.
Also, call me crazy but Dennis Endras could be the answer to our goaltending issues.
