Really solid game from him yesterday......blocking shots, good defensive one-on-one positioning, chipped in a goal, and jumped in after the Vitale/Briere hit. I would be comfortable keeping him in the lineup as the 6th d-man going into the playoffs. I think Lavy is a big fan of his, so we will see what happens. I do think he needs to work on his pugilistic skills over the summer. He's always pretty willing, but I wouldn't say he's the best scrapper in the world.
We good have some good decisions next year with Bourdon, Manning, and Gus. Maybe we don't need to spend a billion dollars on the open market if this in-house talent keeps developing.
