to send out in the dying minutes or to win important draws.
Expecting Max Lapierre to fill that role is a tad optimistic, and claiming that we don't need a defensive specialist for the playoffs is absolutely ridiculous. This team needs Malhotra come Feb far more than it needs a defenceman.
Draper and Maltby are shadows of their former selves.
And it's Kris Draper, by the way.
Malhotra's nothing special.
