I eventually see him as a productive gritty 3rd line LW.
With the kids coming up, they need somebody to look after them.

I really don't understand how he started the season in the ECHL. Did he sleep with someone's daughter? Did he still someone's money? There's no other reason to banish him. He got better with time, but he's just not an ECHL player. He has the hands, the shot, the speed and the size to be a good player. He isn't a stickhandler, but otherwise, he's a pretty complete player.

I don't think he makes the team in October, but I do think he's an NHL player in the future. I hope he can be a good third liner, but if nothing else, I think he can be an energy player on the 4th line. He needs to improve everything just a little bit (gain a couple more pounds, use his skating better, fire the shot a little faster), but this will come with time if he continues to work hard.
