I asked around on Valabik, but it looks like Marchand is the only RFA who was qualified according to
's meticulous research. Wouldn't surprise me if they tried to work out a contract with Boris as the 7th/8th/shuttle defenseman though... maybe try him up front as a 4th liner/net-front presence on the PP in Providence if they decide the blue line's too crowded?
They definitely need a Sabourin-type back in Providence, I'm with you there.
