Congrats - you got a hell of a Dman there for a bargain price. 80% of the Devils fans are sad to see him go. Some will argue but I would say he was our best Dman start to finish last season. Stay at home - no flash and not a risk taker but solid and one of the few guys who will clear the crease these days. A booming shot but rarely uses it (Brodeur was quoted as saying White has one of the hardest shots on the Devils some years back).

The only downside to his game is when he gets fired up he will chase a check out of position and possibly leave an odd man rush behind him. Vision is not an issue now - don't believe the "blind" jokes and whatnot. He used to fight prior to the eye issue but now he can't without risking permanent vision loss. Oh and he's not fast by any means which makes his positioning all the more important.

Colin's a great soldier too - will take orders and not ask twice. Wish him the best with your already solid Defense corps.
