He looked decent in his limited role in his callup, and he has talent. Sort of like Desharnais, only with different dimensions in his offensive game. I think he's as good as Desharnais. Just that you can't hide his size on the wing on an already-small team very well. And eventually you couldn't on his previous teams either. He could score 20 goals in the NHL. Guys like Moen and White couldn't. But anyway, Dawes will probably get some offers from the KHL or Switzerland. I'd love to see him stay around in Hamilton, however. We might not have room for him on the team, but we have room in the organization, and it wouldn't be so painful to call him up if we got an injury to one of our smurfs at some point, one would notice his limitations less. Just idle musings, though.
