I want to like this kid's game, but I am not sure I will. He actually tried to use his size, but he isnt a physical player. I just see him as more of the same. A guy thats soft and thinks defense 2nd. Again, not bad traits, but this line-up is chock-a-block full of it already. I'll give it time, but 2nd, 1st impression is still meh...

It's nice he's a Right Winger and all, plus we're gonna need a new Right Winger soon, but I can agree that we have too many players that are too similar to him already. I think he throws his body around enough, but I think we really need more guys that can carry the puck into the zone, hold on to it, and give us scoring chances. I'm not liking a 2-way forward that's not offensively gifted enough centering Pommers & Vanek. Don't get me wrong, I love Hecht and Paille's 2-way ability, but if Hecht and Paille are every on a breakaway all alone, I don't even flinch. I think we're all gonna be welcoming Weber in this lineup soon.

...we'll be welcoming Weber because the defense is getting soft too. I'm thinking Kennedy centers Pommer's line at some point.
