Good for him. I feel like he at least needed a change in scenery, and it sounds like Colorado was a good place at present with some of their injury problems. Palushaj hasn't seemed like a guy who could stick playing 4th line minutes and getting shuffled all over the place, anyway. Whether he can do anything with a bigger opportunity, who knows. He sure didn't look good for Hamilton this year either, but he was much much better in past seasons in the AHL.

I don't find that he's very involved in the game defensively or physically. He has a mix of general offensive skills, but nothing that stands out. Usually that translates to "career minor leaguer" after enough changes of scenery have occurred to test it out.

It's kind of a tough spot for him to make the most of a change of scenery right now, though, with a weak start to the season and coming off injury. A quick conditioning assignment to Lake Erie would probably make sense.
