    Veteran in Rockford replaces Versteeg. Nothing more, nothing less, for Graham

    Knott, Beach, Runsveldt, McNeill. Power forwards/big centers not easy to draft. Hoping we finally got a stud in KD (wow, KD has a bit of a ring – could be a nickname in that).

    Here’s hoping Entwistle pans out. His early stats are OK but not sure of his role in Rockford?
    Other than hopefully Dach, a 3rd pick, the line of bigger players (Knott, Hayden, Bondra, Starrett) not panning out is long. Hayes didn’t sign.

    From You Tube footage it looks at least like Cramarossa can fight well. There is old footage of him beating up Tom Wilson back in Juniors.

    Lot of good footage on Hockeyfights.com Seems to be able to handle the rough stuff.
