You could tell that from 10 minutes of ice time on the road?

I'll say at camps, he's looked pretty good.

I like what I've seen of Beck at camps. Does he have what it takes to make it at this level, only time will tell. What I did notice is he reminds me of Hartnell and Hornqvist the way he skates. Poorly while lunging forward. The other two ended up ok. He battles well in the corner but did get schooled a few times too.

I remember he loves to shoot the puck and I hope he starts doing more of that soon.

I have to agree, I've always liked his game at camps. He's not fast but he's big and has decent hands for a big guy.

I thought Beck skated pretty good for how big he is. Not smooth but was mobile for his size. He needs to stay up with the team and get some experience.

Beck now has 6 points in 8 games. I'm going to say he's been pretty good so far.

I'd also like to know if Latta and Watson are close?

I think we could bring Latta up now, but he would essentially be another Clune\Tootoo...sparkplug with little to no offensive game.

I think if they keep letting him bake in MKE, he might round out a bit.

Watson has been streaky in Milwaukee...he catches fire, then goes ice cold...I'd probably take it slow there, as well.

I actually like Clune's offensive game more than Tootoo's.

Latta loves to bang, or atleast did in camp. IMHO, he's better than Yip.
