Just checked his stats, seems pretty bad, also small. What’s the relevance here?

He was one of the top college free agents back in 2012. Feaster reportedly tried hard to sign him.

That being said he has barely been a 4th liner for the Lightning the last 2 seasons and now Yzerman wants Brown's roster spot for younger players on the farm.

Would be surprised if anyone claims him.

well whatever he is, he played more NHL games than most highly sought after college free agents.

Just from our team, Morrison, van Bryant, Foo.

I'd grab him purely to inject some experience into Stockton which is needed desperately.

Won't the Flames have to keep him on the main roster?

Failed experiment, stay away. It has become very clear that the best way to build a team is from within. Even Tampa agrees.

Heís only ever been part of one organization and was an undrafted contract that gave them 286 games over 4 and a half seasons in their bottom 6. Thatís a successful signing no matter what way you look at it.

Drafting is good but undrafted gems are out there - Just ask Giordano our captain.
