Yes, I wanted Ottawa to take in the #6 or 7 slot, but, I guess a deal couldn't be made. I think Ottawa wanted him on a two-way, and he wanted a one-way contract. With a fair number of young d-man prospects, I can only assume that Ottawa was worried that he may not have been able to hold on to his spot.

It's a shame, since, I thought he could have been an effective depth guy for us. He's from the area, has a history with the organization, and came off of a pretty decent stint with Nashville. I thought he could provide a veteran presence, to make up for the loss of Curtis Leschysn. Like others have said, he isn't a physical guys, but, he's smart with the puck. I guess, in retrospect, he was probably too similar to Pothier for Ottawa to really make a committment to him.
