However, while Berard's supposed deficiencies in his defensive play didn't stick out to me in the couple games I saw him play...I'm sure that they are there, and considering that the defensive play of some of our guys(namely Kukks and Eminger, Sbisa did have his struggles too, but I'd say he has handled himself surprisingly well for the most part) was my biggest concern in the Rangers game, I'm glad we are bringing in a dman who is considered more of a defensive guy than offensive.
Obviously, I'd love a strong two-way puckmover if we could find one, but that doesn't exactly seem to be where we're at now, does it?
I think we'll make a move for a #3 type guy sometime between Parent returning and the trade deadline, unless Parent comes back 100% and is really awesome out there. We needed someone BAD until Randy Jones comes back, and we got a half-decent guy. This is what you do this time of year.
