WHAT THEY’RE SAYING:
CHRIS PRYOR (Flyers Director of Hockey Operations)
“As a group we maybe thought we had Mike Knuble here," Pryor told NHL.com. "We're hoping Michael, maybe down the road, that's the type of player he can be. They're good down low in front of the net, work the wall, work the corner. We think he's got potential to be that type of guy."

ADAM KIMELMAN (NHL.com)
“Toughness is something that won't be a problem for the 6-foot-3, 210-pound right wing, who will have a chance to compete for a job with the club in training camp.”
