That is a very solid pick up as Foster was very good in Cinci.
I saw alot of the games this past year and he was better than Rome and Popovic overall. He will be a nice call up and possible roster spot down the road.

Nice signing by Minnesota. Hopefully this guy gets the chance to play in the NHL on their third pairing. There is not much more he can accomplish at the AHL level.

the good:

-size 6'4 or 6'5 I think
-one of the hardest point shots in the league. (could be a powerplay specialist)
-Good puck mover

the bad:

-only average defensively
-does not use his size enough, lacks a physical game

Suffers from Brad Isbister (/Derek Morris) sydrome. The total package Foster brings just isn't the sum of the parts

If he's a right handed shot, he could play on the Wild power play right now. I agree that he is definitely worth a look; compared to guys like Michalek and Henry, he could be an upgrade.
