Definite AHL fodder. Not sure why they need him though.

Valimaki Vs. Olsen Vs. Wotherspoon Vs. Kulak Vs. Bartkowski Vs. Kylington Vs. Andersson for the #6 and #7 spots.

Olsen/Wotherspoon/Kulak/Bartkowski could all be the #7 d-man.

He's past that 100 NHL games mark so he's perfect for a split squad game against the Oilers in Edmonton.

We could live in a utopia and most people wouldn't be excited about Dylan Olsen.

Good enough skills to play in the NHL, but he's got a 10 cent brain.

Not that he has a snowball's chance in hell of making the big club or that he's good enough, but this to me is a little bit better than hearing the news about Glass or Cramarossa getting PTOs here.

Oh, and better than hearing Gazdic getting an actual 2-way NHL deal here too.

I like this year's crop of PTOs better than last year's (at least thus far) because there are fewer of them and none of them are likely to make the team. I hope.

Please keep arena talk in the arena threads. We've had to delete a bunch of posts in this thread.

My brother actually played a few games with him in Nanton, says he's packed on some weight and referred to him as a "slug"
