Day 6 was the last full day of our MHH staff retreat to beautiful Tenerife and the group split up to take advantage of various fun activities. Prof and I took a bike ride through the hills outside of town, tracing a route used by some of the pro cycling teams when they train in the area. Fish and SteveHouse took paragliding lessons, SH just missed taking out a group of pasty British tourists on his way to a perfect 4-point landing and hilarity ensued. Mike and Ryan grabbed a sportfishing charter and got a gigantic Wahoo that the chef back at the hotel grilled and made into delicious empenadas for everybody.
We all met up back in the billiard room to recap the days events and contemplate Avs RW Dennis Everberg.
True or False: Dennis Everberg has the upside to be a very solid 3rd liner who could do spot duty in the top-6 when needed.

True(ish): Does he have that upside? Sure. It mean's it's possible to reach that. Is it likely? I doubt it. I see him as a solid third liner and nothing more. He can drive possession, but offensively, he just doesn't have the skill to produce in a top six role (at least we haven't seen it yet). If he does have it, I can't wait to see it, but only time will tell.
False. He's a broke man's Landeskog. I don't see him as much more than depth filler on the bottom 6 and I can't imagine him higher unless it's a gimmick line or weird PP situation.
