We were right in the middle in the PK last year, it's good that we picked him up, but I just don't like not having those picks around for a player that seems like is a hard worker, but don't we already have these types in Nystrom, Gillies, etc?
Damn, a third? I really wish we could bring Madden back, i think he was great for us last year. But, i dont see the point of losing our third when there is a lot of guys from Houston who can fulfill this role, even if it is to replace Staubitz.
Dont know much about Powe too so lets see how it goes.
It never hurts to have a physical banger on the team like this guy. He will be a 4th line player and PKer so I'm not concerned with the scoring. As long as he doesn't play reckless and take too many penalties I'm fine with the trade.
I guess this is part of what Yeo meant by making it tougher to play against the Wild.
Maybe I missed something, but why does everybody have Gillies inked in to our 3rd line LW spot? Did he improve a lot last year? If anything, this deal signals to me that our management doesn't think he will be ready this year.
