the guy is a 3rd/4th liner... at best we could have brought a kid from the AHL for what, 600K ? 100K saved, big woop!
Darche is a fourth liner that won't complain when he doesn't get minutes. He put up 10+ goals and 25+ pts. He's well liked in the room. He can step in on the PP if he's needed. He is not a fighter, but he plays with tons of grit and gets his nose dirty every game. He signed for a smaller cap hit than guys like Bishop, Palushaj, Schultz and Enqvist would cost the Habs (hell, his cap hit is only 34K more than Berger's would be).

It's absolutely absurd that people can criticize this signing.
