RT @AnthonySan37: "… willing to block shots. Great character leader. Warrior. Tough and respected."
The first 7 things he says, has nothing to do with hockey skill. The only thing about anything resembling defense is 'willing to block shots.'
I'm sure his chance will come as an older player when some older guys are moved out, but point is that the discussion is taking place little if any discussion about actually playing hockey. Nothing about shooting, puck possession, defense, penalty killing. Nothing. Not even the lack of it.
has seen good or bad attributes. That is how you know you've made a bad pick.
From the sounds of it he'll be a bottom six winger who will be a penalty killer. A heart and soul guy whos a great teammate. It's either that or he doesn't make the NHL. What the **** can i say? I know nothing about the guy because I never heard of him.
