it was thought he was a lock to crack the NHL this year. he played in Europe and a couple more games, got sent down and hasnt been seen since
He's a fighter that doesn't fight, is playing pathetically bad and takes absolutely brainless penalties. He's taken about four giant steps back in his development, and I can't see him being even offered a contract for next season.
How has Sateri looked thus far? I know its only 3 games and he hasnt done great in them. Just was curious, for those who have seen him so far in the AHL, does he show some good upside at least?
I wish I could give you more, but only saw him in one full home game (he played tonight in relief but I left early due to the suckfest).
He was OK - gave up a bad five holer. Looks like a lot of real estate in the five hole area. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of him since we are virtually out of the playoffs now. Hoping to see good things from the kid.
I say let's start next season with a completely new set of D. Requirements include:
1. being able to make a break out pass that hits the tape of a teammate
2. not falling asleep to allow breakaways behind you
3. an ability to fire the puck from the point without hitting the defender 5 feet in front of you
4. occasionally winning a battle behind the net
