Kalinin back on a one year deal

Can't complain.  Big guy who can skate okay.  He'll play on the 4th and provide some ability along the boards on that line.  Him, Fiddler, and I guess Josefson will be our 4th line.  All three can play C and take face offs too.

Good. I don't have a legitimate reason but I really like him. Also I love his celebrations when he scores. Really looks like he loves playing the game. 

Agreed. He wasn't flashy and neither were his numbers (far from it), but he always seemed to do the right things. Another year of North American hockey, some good coaching and development, and I think he will emerge a very serviceable 3rd liner/Zubrus type (in the good sense; a young Zubrus, which a team can always find useful).

Poor mans Zubrus!

Very likely path of his development.  Like his play, he doesn't hold the team back on defense and is a great body in front of the net.  I like what I saw from him last year.   Hell, Kalinin is a huge steal if you can get 15g 20-30a from him ala Zubrus

If he put up numbers like that, I'd be elated. He'll be closer to half of that.
