He's fully committed to trying to make the roster (heard that on TSN1200 today). Given our lack of depth at left-wing he actually could have a chance, especially if we don't get anything via a trade or the free agent market. At the very least he'll be in Bingo and be available for a callup.
Lack of depth on LW?
Then why is everyone always complaining that we don't have any left-hand shots? Or is that just at center? I'm confused.
But in any case, 6'3" (they actually said "almost 6'4" last year) and 220 lbs. Of the other players you mentioned only Michalek comes close to that but his wheels aren't what they used to be.
And how about this quote:
"I liked that he was really hard on me, I like when coaches are hard on me," he said. "That's the best way to learn, I find."
Left handed C. And Paul is one of the best faceoff guys in the OHL, so he might be able to take left handed draws when he's up in Ottawa.
I like the sound of Paul a lot, I think he has a legit chance to be a big part of Ottawa. And now you add in Lazar and White with Pageau as well and you have a filthy bottom 6 coming.
What happened to Zibanejad?!?!
I thought this kind of talk would only start after the Dev Camp scrimmage.
