Excellent signing for the leafs.They give up no prospects,picks or players and he moves all but two of our d-men down the depth chart to a more realistic role for themselves.It also buys some time for the promising young defensemen to hone their skills and gain some more much needed experience.Acquiring a guy like Klee through a trade later on this season would have required losing assets we simply cannot afford to lose.Even if it is deemed necessary to acquire another veteran d-man later on at least we wont be viewed as *desperate* by the other gms who would quite possibly ask for more than a fair return.

We still have only an average defense,but at least we got the kind of player we needed.Now unless one of the young guns can show they will be capable of putting up a few points(which may happen) then i'd like to see an offensive 2nd unit PP guy signed before long.

So far so good Fergie.
