Didn't Wolski, Mueller and Svatos all play on the same team/line for Colorado at one point?

Tallon must've really enjoyed watching that team because he's given all three guys a chance now.

Well, he's a body.

Unfortunately it seems like the injuries in his past have really hurt his career. Don't know if he has anything left int he tank to seriously contribute. Hasn't really been relavent in the hockey world for what seems like ages...

The only intriguing thing here is that he took a year off to heal from injuries. Perhaps injuries really plagued him for a long time? If he is feeling 100% he could be rejuvenated.

The catch is that we've all heard these same stories before. I am not expecting much of anything, but if he feels good and makes it worth our while to sign him in camp, then what the heck.

No harm in exploring this.

Well Florida is the place to get chances if you're under 30 and have a bad injury history and are european

Maybe he can be effective on the powerplay..

Otherwise, he's pretty small. Don't know how much of an impact he can be at this point in his career.

I guess I'm ok with this as long as he's not preventing someone else more worthwhile from a spot. He hasn't had a relatively healthy season in four years, so I'm not sure how much playing time he'd actually see. I liked his play when the Avs had some of their good runs in the playoffs, but that was quite awhile ago.

Realistically speaking, he's not going to make the team.

Injuries to regulars may open up a spot for guys like him who are trying to make it.

I disagree, I think he has been a good 3rd line player his whole career. Just because he has had an injury doesn't mean he hasn't healed. I think he could really strengthen our 2nd or 3rd line.

Anyone think Flash (and to a lesser extent, Mueller) got Svatos here?

It's the best Tallon can do at this point, but he's not going to make much of a difference.

I hope he is able to make it. That way we dont have to burn a year of the ELC from our young guys and we can develop him in AHL so that we can put him in next year..Still dont think that any other than Shore could make the team

Soon as injured are back I would assume he would just be waived. Not getting excited about this. Just a body till our injuries heal.

Also, I highly doubt Svatos would be valuable on a checking line. Isn't he another one of the top-6 or bust type of players.

Smaller winger who could succeed with playmakers around him/otherwise useless?

Supposedly he had really high ups after his first season with the Avalanche, I guess a lot of people expected him to excel even more than 32 goals, but after he got hurt it ruined all of those hopes.

He seems to make good plays and handle the puck pretty well, I don't know why so many of you are expecting him not to make the team, if he is healthy and saying he is healed, he is young enough to restart his career, especially with the Panthers, Mueller is trying to do it, and all of you were happy about that... right?

I think the major pessimism stems from the fact he hasn't been an impact player since the 2005 season. That was a LONG time ago.

No. Wolski was traded for Mueller back in 2010.

In reality, are there really ANY impact players on the Panthers roster?

You didn't really answer my question.

If his spot on the team is as a checking line player, would he be valuable in a checking line role?
