I don't see why everyone is so high on this guy. His skating is average, below average size, puck skills are the worst of our group. I mean heart does mean a lot but other than that, he doesn't do much.
Trigg, you're very much right: skating is average, below average size, and the puck skills are the worst of our group.

However, he brings a welcome physicality, a great deal of heart, and (most importantly) a good hockey IQ/steadying presence (only Weber, Suter and Hamhuis better of our group) to a bunch of rather green defensemen- that are likely to get greener.

Dollar amount was about right too.
