This is another rather smart pick up by Gauthier. He gets a guy that averaged almost 18 min/game of ice time last year with a +5 rating to really make Emelin and Weber and maybe even Spacek earn their spots out of camp. He's not an over the hill d-man by any standards (only 28), is an ex first round pick, and logged huge minutes for Dallas last year at times (25:30 one game). Like someone else said, he's a replacement for the role Picard played last year, but what looks like a better version of. Glad we didn't someone like Hannan, who would have just complicated things too much. Getting a proven NHler willing to take a 2-way contract is really impressive by Gauthier, imo.
