He's never been given prime offensive opportunities, which he probably would be here. Plus, he's cut from the Sutter mold, so that's a bonus. I'd certainly take him over Richards at this point in time, that's for sure.
yeah for sure. I looked at his stats and they aren't terrible. I think his play would elevate as an Oiler by virtue of his size and skills filling such a desperate need. With good linemates he would produce.

He's also a right hand shot, which would fit our center group well. Potential 2C, but still a gamble. I'm not against trying.
