You obviously did not watch the same games I did of him last season. I am beyond myself how people would be able to say in all seriousness that he was the Habs best d-man last year. He was close to awful on way too many nights. I would say only Spacek was worse. Too many unforced errors and giveaways, too many times caught out of position.

And to cap it all off, the way he went down like a ton of bricks against Boston just before their 3rd goal in game 7 was the closer for me. I HOPE the offer is only a courtesy one and we move on. We have enough non-physical, slow d-men that don't / can't join the rush on this team.
