He looked really good in the pre-season playing some top line minutes with iggy and such, but i guess there isn't really room for him on this team considering we have Prust and Roy as our 13th foward... Personally i belive he could help this team more then either of those two, but i wouldn't put Lundmark in place of Primeau. I would however place lundmark in the lineup over Nystrom at this point, assuming Lundmark could switch over to left wing.
Hes on a one way deal he would have to pass through waivers and I dont think sutter is going to take a chance on losing him. He does a great job with the younger players (chucko) and teaches them hockey. Hell he is one of the best skaters I have ever seen he is sooooooo smooth out there. I do like that they forgot to add the ot winner in there for Iowa a couple of weeks ago when he pulled a bubba and gave the puck up on the blue line.
