Babchuk is the only decent piece left and we would be good to get a 2nd at the deadline. IMO Babs would make a very good #5 D for our club going forward. He may be slow but he will put up 10+ goals and block a lot of shots. At the right price he is a great player.
I dunno... Sutter gave up Aulie as well, who may very well turn into a decent defenseman. I think the Flames could have gotten a bit of a better return in the Pfaneuf deal.
