Well honestly there were like 2 of us who watched Read and said he could do it. We were criticized that a 25 yr old UFA NCAA agent had a small chance of making it. Those of us who saw him in the AHL said how much he dominated and could play at the next level based off of all his skills.

Now Flanagan while he has (I think) better offensive potential then Read, doesnt have Read's defensive play. Flanagan doesnt shy away from defense (like Briere) but his size hasnt helped him.

Do I think he will make the team out of camp? No, but I think he will get a long look despite his size.
