He's very cheap, on a two way contract so as a waiver wire pickup he's quite nice for Toronto as an occasional fill-in or 4'th liner with limited ice time at best.
Barring injuries he's pretty much assured of being a healthy scratch down the stretch and in the playoffs.
The guys really likeable, has a great attitude, and supposedly a good lockerroom guy as well.
Granted I'm slightly biased as he's is (or was) one of my favourite players on the Habs.
Pretty soft despite his size, so he won't offer much of a physical presemce.
Physicality isn't exactly a weakness of Toronto though.
Can't say as he has much offensive skills at all.. weak shot, mediocre passer, limited offensive vision so he's certainly not going to be a scoring threat but he's versatile in terms of positioning and quite good defensively.
Habs fans never seemed to care much for him, but I'm happy about his pickup even if he probably won't ever see much ice time.
Welcome to Leafs Nation, leave your common sense at the door.
