He provides size, leadership, grit and he has the skill to play a regular shift, easily. I'd rather him on the ice than Van Allen, and considering our injury woes, it might not be a bad idea. The downside is that he makes 1.6 million. I don't know how long his contractt runs for, but this is the type of player I wouldn't mind picking up for the playoffs. Well, I say we pick him up right now.

Thoughts?
IMO Wiemer is also better than Varada.
