I would take Thibault, but Chicago is going to be horrid, he will suffer.
At some point, people will realize it's going to take alot more than Sydor and Marchant to make Columbus a good hockey team. Free Agent signings of solid players have done nothing to cure their defensive woes and surely you don't think Sydor will seriously help that. Ask any Columbus fan who he thinks will be better, Nashville or Columbus and you will be quite suprised by the answers of several. The system has failed them defensively for so long now, it's hard to think Sydor is going to make it better. Give them time to find a coach who can implement a good defensive system, then Columbus will be a playoff team.
