Scratching my head a bit with that signing, to be honest - she is listed as a forward everywhere that I can find, but at the same time she looks like she has a fairly strong body, so hopefully she can be like Bygate and play as an undersized center. A true center would be nice but I guess at this time of the season you've got to take what's available.
I don't think they could really play their development players to replace Black, most of their development girls are smaller, if I recall correctly. I'd much rather the development girls got to play when the coaches think they're ready to do so as opposed to being thrown in the deep end because there are no other players.
I'm just hoping they can turn their season around, perhaps playoffs may be a stretch this season, but getting some wins would be nice.
