I admit I underrate him (as much as you overrate him), he could help the bottom pairings for sure and even fill-in a top 4 role but there are a few problems.

Namely, his salary...Sharks already have quite a few overpaid players and two of them are on the blueline that I'd Beauch just a notch above (actually Huskins' deal isn't as bad his when you compare ability vs $$$).

Another is your ridiculous price for him...I realize you're not the GM of the Leafs but just having to reading those posts is insulting to me. I know you don't want Gooch so I won't get into that but Clowe or a 1st round pick is ludicrous when you look at the current marketplace for defencemen of his caliber.

You want a 3rd rounder and a decent can stomach that. I could probably even stomach a 2nd rounder straightup.
