Henry Hank wrote:I was shocked to read this last night, but it's good to see the commitment he has to making the NHL and not just making money somewhere. This by far increases the chances that he eventually makes some impact in the NHL since he can spend a little while in WBS, getting used to North American hockey, and then maybe will be in the running for a call-up when they need someone... if he deserves it, of course. This also maybe creates a situation where you can think of him a little more long-term. He's not exactly young, but he isn't old either. They had to sign him to a one year deal, and I'd assume he's a UFA after the season, you'd think the Pens would be his first choice since they gave him this opportunity.
Reading the article, and the one in the PG, he talked like he really, really wanted to play for the Pens. I like that.
