Halpern > Ivanans
I thought he was a first liner though...at least the coach thought he could be

He's been awful. He makes turnovers and he is where cycles go to die.

He's surpassed Jones as my official whipping boy, well.....almost. I loved how at the end of the game, Murray throws Halpern,Modin and Jones out there. Camera pans to them and Jones is chuckling because the game is in the bag; he then proceeds to turn the puck over and possibly blow the shutout for Bernier.

My problem with Halpern is that I feel Purcell hurt us less by sitting in the press box and the 3rd round pick makes it look like a real overpayment on DL's part. He still has time to escape Ronning, Carter and Parrish territory but I wouldn't count on it.
