Wonder where he will come in the lineup. He`ll be competing with Bitz, Kassian, Pinnizotto and probably Weise in training camp.

I think Pinizotto will get another crack, Weise is rfa, so he's likely staying.

It's slightly above league minimum for a tough kid with a bit of hockey-playing ability. How is it a waste of money? The whole team can't be superstars. He's a good 13th forward when we need a shot of toughness.

Volpatti is a great depth forward. His willingness to thrown down in sorely lacking.

Fourth Line Options

Volpatti - Ebbett - Bitz

Volpatti - Ebbett - Kassian

or after a couple of UFA signings

Volpatti - Burish - Parros

That's a menacing fourth line
