Can you imagine the "Big Snake" jerseys being sold if he somehow gets a contract? Great Marketing...

Decent scoring, good PIMs, his name reeks of badass. Where do I sign?

I mentioned this in another thread....shades of Chris Simon? and not because he's Native American either tongue.gif He can develop into a decent poward forward who can fight and is scared of NO ONE

Yes, at some point he can. He has talent, he's not just an enforcer. He was very impressive when he went to camp with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL team of NY Rangers). He's still very young, and the problem he's encountered has been his maturity at times, but he's a fireball and has been very impressive whereever he's been. I have no doubt he'll stick around if he has a good camp, Grand Rapids wants to field a tougher team and right now, they just have Amadio signed, it makes sense to get a guy like Big Snake.

I wonder if he is bound to play in Rockford this year? If he does well at camp, He could end up in Grand Rapids, and from there, who knows?

Is it possible this kid could play on a fourth line in the NHL?

I don't know this to be a fact, but I believe if he was to make Grand Rapids, he'd be able to opt out of his contract with Rockford given the AHL is 2 steps above the UHL.

Wow, I'm actually suprised that the wings would invite someone like that to camp. I agree with everybody that he would sell TONS of jerseys with that name. Is he an Avery type of player?
