I know some people will complain about his small size, but he's looked pretty damned impressive at camp so far. It's still up in the air as to whether he will make it because of guys like Schnable, Hamhuis but I think he could surprise people and sneak into the final roster.
if it came down to Francis Bouillion(whom we lost in the waiver draft last year, after having him for a few weeks) or Curtis Murphy, I'd take Francis. For being tiny, he was a hard hitter and skilled defenseman. That being said, I think there's no way Murphy makes the team. there's really not a spot for a 5'8 offensive defenseman, as far as i can see.
