Good to see the Crunch give him an opportunity. Anyone know the length of the term?
For everyone talking about call-ups and playing on the fourth line. This is only a minor league contract. He cannot be called up by the Jackets. I don't see any reason to fret or any reason to be really excited unless there's some kind of sentimental reason. Perhaps he can develop a little in Syracuse and eventually be sighned to a two-way. I wouldn't mind seeing it. He needs improvement, but I think he has potential to make it back into the NHL.
I always believed given more opportunity the guy could do better. That was Danny's opinion too, and rather than do better I think he got stale with us the 1st time around.
I saw him play for the Sarnia Sting, and know folks up there that love the kid.. I hope he can live up to his early projections (pre shoulder surgeries) he would be a great player to add to the team.. has a little bit of Umberger in him.
