I don't know how he'll do with all that time off, but if he's anything like he was in Nashville, you'll absolutely love him. Good for 16-20 goals in a full year, never takes a night off. Good penalty killer, can play a scoring or a grind role. In fact, knowing that he had to clear waivers to get to Phoenix...I'm a little annoyed that we let him go through. This guy was THE consumate Predator in his time here, almost as much as Walker.
Good luck, Vladdy.
Thanks for the description. I look forward to seeing him as a Blue.
