Competent, 20+ minutes a night, UFA D cost coin... that's just the way it is. That's why trading one of Carle/Coburn makes so much sense going along with this trade.
Hamhuis can also contribute a bit offensively. He has a 38 point season on his resume... if you stick him with Timonen or Pronger he'll get some assists. If he gets out on the PP, he'll get some points there as well.
I mean, Matt Carle had a rebound year to 35 pts this year, and Pronger had a LOT to do with him getting up to that point total.
