I don't see the point of signing Pandolfo when you have Kostopoulos and Begin as veterans, plus youngsers Lapierre and Chichura developing. For what you gain, might as well go with what you have and trade for a short term fix before the deadline if it's a piece missing. Maybe Lapierre and Chichura will end up being more productive by then and they cost nothing...same as Bouillon Gorges O'byrne vs getting a lower tier UFA d-man...you could use the same logic for Halak.
Detroit is a very good example, they gave Kronvall Filippula and Franzen a shot instead of going for big UFA's and they came up big. Habs did it with Plekanec A.Kost S.Kost Gorges the last few years.
