To me he's looking like he could be exactly what we wanted and hoped Eager would bring to the team.

Now if only Eager could get back to that level as well... the Oilers would have 2 great options for size/speed/grit in the bottom 6 which would make the lineup a hell of a lot more balanced and hard to play against than we've seen the last few years.
He's not much of a fighter though although he seems willing. Last night he was dumped hard by Tangradi and wanted a piece of Tangradi but Tangradi stopped him from getting up.
