      If they keep him over here, good move by the front office to nail down an asset.

      In a perfect world, he could be the next Pronger.
      FTFY

      You did say perfect after all.

      My "perfect world" was still somewhat rooted in plausible reality. But hell yeah, let’s go for broke during imagination time.
