Darren Archibald is he ready to step up?

Recommended Posts

Yup, he played in the AHL before being sent down to the ECHL after not playing terribly great. He got a call up again later but hasn't been that impressive.

He may still get there, but at this point I don't put him ahead of Bitz/Wesie/Volpatti and certainly not ahead of Manny and Lappy.

I did notice him in camp last year too, looked pretty solid but that seemed to disappear once he headed for the Wolves.

Played a bottom six role in Chicago last year for 20 games, then got sent to Kalamazoo. This could mean they are trying to develop his offensive skills or that he didn't look solid in a bottom six role. Either way, putting him on the Canucks fourth line would seem to be counter productive to what management is thinking.

I'm hoping for him to make the AHL this year and make an impact there.
