I'd be highly interested in him for a third line role.
Of course, that leaves Connolly and Afinogenov high and dry. With Maxim possibly returning to form, that might not be such a good idea. But with Connolly...get rid of him.
I dunno. As much as it would be great for Thomas to come here, I think hindering Connolly and/or Afinogenov's development by putting one or both of them on the fourth line would be a bad idea. Especially since both are due for good, possibly breakout years.
