Both would’ve been free agents in a few weeks, still Starrett, Ryzcek and J, Dahlstrom who will become free agents this summer if not signed.
Ramsay is a very vocal leader and was for the Gopher hockey team. Really good team guy. He will likely do the same in Indy.
Coughlin is a really big body.
AHL roster depth.
Big? Small? Fast? Talented? Do they ring value to the organization or are they trade bait?
H4L both have good size, Ramsey probably more mobile of the 2. Neither be big offensive players, 2way wingers who may be bottom 6 someday with development.
