This year Yellow Horn was invited to the ADs camp in Norfolk. I think after viewing the offensive deficiencies of this year's ADs edition, Yellow Horn deserves another hard look. I know he's not the biggest player on the ice, but he does seem to know what to do with the puck. He could be a relatively inexpensive part of the solution for the ADs next year.
