They are probably the most important thing for a dman to be graded on outside of clearing the puck. But the fact he has zero offensive ability makes him expendable for this team. As we all can agree

Didn't know that, shows how much I've been keeping up with it

Doesn't Burke have a hardon for him??

He could garner fair value at the trade deadline, so unless management is convinced no one in Houston can fill an opening, I think he's gone at the trade deadline when we can still get something for him.
Can't we just move him down to 3rd/4th line like he wants with Granlund comes??

Koivu
Granlund
Cullen
Brodziak

He wants to be a grinder center anyways??
