Good, he'll definitely challenge for the #4C spot. I thought his play was coming around until he inexplicably took on Scott in that fight. I think he could earn a close to full time spot on the team, although I'm sure that is not the popular opinion on here.
There's a very good chance he makes this team as the 4th line center. I was really impressed with him last year. Good speed, penalty killing and decent hands. He should stop fighting though.
Likewise with Hansen. These 2 guys have spunk - and you gotta appreciate that - but their hands just aren't meant to be used for fighting. Seriously, I will be effing pissed if Hansen breaks his hand in a pre-season fight again.
Rypien is 'undergunned'? Who has more guns than him in the NHL? Maybe the super heavyweights.
Edit: Lets get Jaffray on our fourth line again! It was always fun watching him get worked over.
Well im sure rypien would be undergunned against John Scott, which is why claiming Bolduc is undersized or undergunned against that giant slug is rather silly given that every 4th line player would be in that situation.
The canucks are obviously interested in Aaron Asham. You act like they aren't looking at adding a little toughness to the bottom six. They dealt for Oreskovich, and im guessing Desbiens gets a good look at camp after the playoffs he had with the Moose.
I almost get the feeling that you wouldn't be happy until there is 23 guys on the roster that will drop the gloves.
