Don't get me wrong, I totally agree that if Pall wasn't performing on special teams and was also behind the rest of the Canadian d-linemen, he didn't deserve to make the team. I guess the act of cutting him loose is what surprised me. And that blog suggests cap issues were a consideration, since four other players (apparently?) will be on the one-game IR to start the season.
His body type seems more suited to MLB, as I see it.
