Even a guy like Aaron Rome scored 24 points in 64 games at the same age. We'll see I guess. My feeling is that it's not worth taking up a contract spot as there are better defensemen available in the AHL ranks without an NHL contract.
If you aren't occasionally folding winning hands you aren't playing poker right. Maybe he is an NHLer with more development but you have to cut some one occasionally. I think with Sauve we might need to fold, at some point the contract slot is worth more than the player's perceived potential.
Best hope would be trade throw in or get him to sign an 1 year AHL team contract not an NHL team one. I'd hate to see us lose one of the college UFA's because of lack of spots.
