Plus, White would be a pretty good mentor coming from an organization like New Jersey. At 3M per, 1 more year there is no risk at all just like Barker.

EDIT - And he could have some serious value at the deadline to a contender.
Completely agreed. People are nuts if they think that we couldn't use White on our blueline, he would immediately be our 2nd best defenseman and a great leader for the youngsters, this seems like a no brainer to me.
