Reach out in a hurry. Be realistic and be prepared. If he is a F, be ready to discuss stats, strengths and status on current team. Lots of dusters can forecheck/backcheck and look pretty skating but do they consistantly find the net? If D, being quick, strong on skates and skilled offensively will start the conversation. Everyone wants a D who can tally A's and G's but they are rarer than a midnight sun.
