As I noted, I don't see him as a solution to our defensive problems.

Its a minor move and the kind of move that DW should consider before making a 'blockbuster' trade as this rumor discussed.
But I don't have a problem with your POV that he's not a partial solution to our defensive problems since we need a top 4 defenseman and he isn't that. We need a puck mover and he isn't that either. But we do need help from the point and as a mid-season injury replacement with some speed, its not a bad interim solution.
Since there is another thread on this as you note, I will stop posting here about MAB.
The point is that the youngsters are better stopgaps than MAB. He is that bad. Braun has shown as much and more than MAB in two games.
