Note: Pavel Valentenko Can Fire The Puck

At Howlings, Mitch Beck notes that defenseman Pavel Valentenko has a shot that is reminiscent of Chris Pronger, Sheldon Souray and Zdeno Chara.

More on Valentenko, HERE.

He had five goals last season and took 123 shots.

I have unfairly discounted him as someone who can take one of the final roster spots and win a job out of training camp. He hits, he has a shot and John Tortorella was a big fan of his last year. The best players in camp will make the team, and if Tank is one of them, he will make the team an either Tim Erixon or Michael Del Zotto, or possibly both if they only go with six, will end up in Hartford.
