I'm glad Staios is signed, he's a capable #6-7 dman.

But if you're thinking he's much of an upgrade over Hillen/Gervais then you'll be shocked once we get 10-12 games into the NHL regular season.
I would say he is an upgrade over Gervais and Hillen. Not a huge upgrade but enough to make a difference from those 2. More importantly, he helps out some of the younger defenseman while filling in or playing bottom pairing.

Now we still need major help on defense so let's keep hoping something else happens.
