I think they do. I think they envision him to be Jay McKee's replacement. Heck, he's already playing more minutes than McKee and only trails Brewer and Jackman in ice time. He and Erik Johnson would make a great pairing.

I like Polak. He's a steady, mobile defenceman that can make a very good first pass. He's not as offensive as Giordano, but he's a big body that can move and could fit in on most teams' top-4 and should be a very good #3 guy in the future. He's a cross between the Sabres' Henrik Tallinder and the Flames' Corey Sarich, but with more upside than Sarich.
