I've been hoping the Habs would sign another D for depth... Woywitka is kind of at the shallow end of my hopes, but at least he's something. Even if the young guys pan out, there are going to be injuries, and we will need a #8 guy. And probably a #9, maybe a #10. So for a minimal cost and a 2-way contract, Woywitka is a decent option. Not sure that he's actually better than Picard, but in the same category, and overall I'm happy with what we got from Picard last season.
I guess my lament remains that I had hoped for more for this year's D. I'm content *at this stage* that we signed Woywitka. We needed the depth. I just wish the team had gone for a more prominent guy long before reaching this stage. Oh well.
