He's a good hitter, doesn't hurt defensively but doesn't particularly help either, little to no offense and lacks footspeed. He's an OK 4th liner but he's more an AHL leader/NHL call up guy on good team.

Typical workhorse fourth liner who's best off in the AHL because of his non-existent offensive game and mediocre skating.

Hits anything that moves, though.

Sounds like one of the targeted "size on the 4th line" signings that JR was talking about heading into the season then. He'll probably be fighting it out with guys like Anthony Stewart for the 4th line slot in camp.

played for the Islanders at times....basically only on the NHL team due to lack of depth..if he plays 82 games for the Canes, either alot of injuries happened or the Canes lack NHL depth....basically another John Mitchell type player..

He was good in the little time he was with the Lightning. Solid signing.

He's willing to, but he's awful at it.

Don't we already have this guy? His name is Nicholas Blanchard....I just don't get signings like this at all, unless he is indeed a character guy who will spend every game in Charlotte. He lacks foot speed so he's not gonna be on the PK....we now have four 4th liners so something's got to give. One or more of Brent, Stewart, Dwyer, LaRose, or Bowman seemingly have to be part of a trade package....unless we carry a 23 man roster and assume that Wallace is a Checker.

I don't see why we'd assume otherwise, considering he's signed to a 2-way deal. If we planned on him being in Raleigh, we'd be paying him accordingly.
