I wish the best for Mr. Westrum. He didn't really have a spot in Phoenix, what with our 19 different centers, but he was always the hardest worker and I'm glad to see him head back home. As for Michalek...eh.
Z-man is depth and that's okay. Agreed about Westy, and I think he may crack the Minny lineup with his fire and hard work. Lemaire will dig him, I think. Eric has also shown hands in an international shootout format. He showed signs of a young Mike Sullivan, IMO. Ace plumber who will pot an occasional biggie.
