Our track record for these type of guys (assuming smaller wingers) is PPG AHL players (Omark, Rajala, Arco), and decent rookie NHL forward seasons (Arco,Omark)
If this guy turns into a .8 ppg AHL, or anything like Rajala or Omark. Thats a win as it improves our AHL team greatly and lets players like Moroz/Khaira play with skill
Not every signing has to turn into a top 6 guy, and this guy likely never will
