Gilbert Brule To Phoenix

The Phoenix Coyotes have picked up C Gilbert Brule on Re-Entry Waivers from the Edmonton Oilers.

Analysis: He is a draft bust. Period. Taken 6th Overall, above the likes of Anze Kopitar (11th Overall), Jack Skille (7th Overall), and Devin Setoguchi (8th Overall). He's a third line player that can have rare flashes of brilliance that can make him a second liner at times. He's a lot like a Kyle Turris the fact that they are both draft busts and had such great potential. Comes at a lot cheaper price though.
