I'm betting against him being a NHL player at this point.
In some ways, yes, but he's also basically a Trotz player out of the box. If he can kill penalties on the fourth line, BT isn't going to care if he never comes close to scoring a goal. Look at how long Jerred Smithson flourished here.
Rask's offensive game never really developed the way anyone hoped it would. Bottom six forward in both the AHL and NHL.
Exactly, he's shown raw offensive talent and the ability to be a set up guy for Cehlin, Klasen, and Puustinen among others at prospect camp in the past. Has not developed into a top-six prospect in the SM-liiga, but I also don't believe he was drafted to be one either.
Two-way player. Good skater. Will set up more than finish likely. Might be a good fit if he still has any chemistry with Puustinen or Cehlin from camp...
I see that Shaun "of the dead from the neck up" Davis is one of the refs. No wonder that Aaron Sims is laughing out loud at some of the calls. Davis is a poor ref, even by AHL standards. Simms isn't saying which ref is calling the penalties. Milwaukee has 5 minors in the second period. Ouch!
Now 6 minors in the second period for Milwaukee. Winchester was given a penalty for getting his helmet ripped off by Kyle Beach. One more Rockford goal and I predict a brawl. The Ads must be getting tired of Beach diving the whole game and they get nearly all of the penalties. Rockford was called for 2 penalties in the second period.
