He's a two-way forward that is good at faceoffs. That sounds like something that any team could use in their system. And those are very good numbers for a rookie in his first year of professional hockey.
Sestito was pretty well pegged to be a fourth line fringe guy before we even got him. He further proved that when he only played in twenty-one games in two seasons with the Flyers while only putting up three points and being a liability for a stupid penalty on any shift. He's always been sub NHL quality.
Chaput actually has some talent and could be in the NHL one day. Even if only as a fourth line center, that's a hell of a lot more valuable than a Sestito type.
