Man, what is it you guys don't get? He's A DEPTH DEFENSMAN....if things go well, he's unlikely to see any time with the Habs this year. He's simply an insurance policy in case (and there always is) there are any injuries on the backend this year.
Do you guys not recall the Habs to to play Brendan Nash for 3 games in an emergency situation last year because of injuries? No offense to Nash, who is a decent prospect...but he had no business playing in the NHL last year. He was severely overmatched in the 3 games he played, which isn't all that surprising considering he was an undrafted NCAA dman who was just starting his 1st pro season.
I get what Gauthier is trying to do with guys like Mitera and Woywitka...just guys he can stash in the AHL and use as callups with NHL experience in case things go bad injury wise. Why is this so difficult to understand?
