    Unhappy in tdot. Do you think because he was being utilized as a defensive dman? 36 points in his rookie season with ppp and then a decline and no pp time for the last 2 years... So if he gets moved do you think its to somewhere where he could be more offensive? pp time??
    He's available on the wire so was just wondering, love his blocks.

    I find this really hard to predict since (a) there is no guarantee he will get traded; and (b) if he does get traded, his powerplay opportunity will be determined based on where he goes. Do you have a free roster spot, or would you have to drop someone in your sig to make room for him?

    I only add if it's a free spot to fill right now.. At best he ends up in a spot where he gets PP2 time.
    Maybe like Vancouver. But like Van & any PP2 time he gets, it'll be a D starved team that takes him. Likely meaning, not a really good team.

    if he does land on a good team, expect less PP time as he doesn't have the chops to really knock much of anyone out their spot.
    Be a catch 22 with this move I think...

    Most likely, there's better options on the wire.
    If you count hits/blocks - then his value increases a bit as he offers decent returns in those cats.
    Yesterday's weirdness is tomorrow's reason why. - H.S.T.

    I found him to be a great hits/blocks streaming option, not much more than that.
