Now that Dandenault is gone, if he makes the club, he can have number 11"

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?

He's an Avery type of player, but more fearless and bigger than McCarty

That is fantastic. It's actually something to be excited about.

I wonder why the invite to training camp? Looks like he can, and will, make Grand Rapids, maybe this is one of those good deals Holland is looking for to get tougher?

This guy was dropped from his Western Hockey League team early last season, then somehow managed to be picked up by an Ontario Hockey League team [Owen Sound] later that same season. They mentioned specifically in the article "...we were unable to get Robin to channel his competitiveness and talent, which are two of his biggest assets, in the right direction. Unfortunately, I felt he was a distraction to what we need to do as a team and Sunday night it got to the point where I had to act.�. Man, I wonder what he did to get cut from his team, punch out the coach or another player?

Supposedly, after he went to camp with Hartford and was the last one cut, he thought his poopy didn't stink wink.gif and he was a bit too cocky for the locker room. He's got some growing up to do, but he's worth the wait
