I thought he was pretty tough with size, but after checking his fights on youtube, I am disappointed. Alberts is even better than him.
We should go for the Jimmy V guy instead of Cam Barker.
What?! And you were so high on him in the PTO thread, because he's 6'3", 220. What changed? You actually went and looked at what type of player he is and then decided he didn't fit your tough guy mold?
Winchester is trying out for Calgary, perhaps you should go cheer for them.
I'm not sold on it but for the cost I can't complain. I just knew I didn't want him for anything close to the $2.25M he made last year considering the reviews on why the Oil (and Minny and Chicago before them) dropped him.
He's a lefty, who at least played on the left side in the Spengler Cup, although he could switch sides on the PP. I'm not sure without going to watch some highlights if he's played the right side at all so I'd expect he'll play on the left side in place of Ballard at times or in the event of any injuries.
There is the chance he can pick up some of what he'd brought with Chicago, and we'll use him in specific situations to help with that, so hopefully it does work out. This team has done a lot with zone starts and matchups to get the most out of players. If not, he'll be fine on the Wolves.
