He needs to bulk up before he has any chance at being a regular in the NHL.
I agree that he needs to sign this year and get into the AHL. He needs to be in a pro program to add some weight. If people think he's going to put on 20 lbs. of muscle they are crazy. He's about 20 now and weight somewhere around 170. Realistically he might top at 180 if he's lucky. His weight does not scare me really. He has assets that help him out. Good stick, positional sound and elusive in his own end.
