Cam Barker is 6'3 220 and he plays like hes 5'7.
Another reason hes in Rockford.
I agree with ya, Eddie O was talking about that all last year, he even mentoined it at the convention when he introduced him. He needs to play with his full size, he has a great slap shot but he doesn't use at as often. Maybe sometime in Rockford will teach him. I'm not saying keep him there all year. But sometime there

Me being fron winnipeg, Iv'e played against Barks for a good portion of my hockey career. The kid has some world class skill. I have yet to come across a defenceman that is able to handle the puck like he can, the guy is sick.

Even if he were to crack the hawks roster, he would be in the top 5 of that team in terms of raw skill. However the guy loves to booze, all the time. I think its one of those things where he knows hes going to end up in the show, and hes comfortable raking in his 2.5-3 mill a year and be a sub - par 3-4th defenceman.
