Spurgeon has had a great knack for avoiding the hit. He simply oozes hockey sense and knows where to be when, and when to not be somewhere...

Is he a top pairing D-man? No, but he was forced into that role for us due to the ineptitude of the rest of the D. In the long run, he'll be a solid depth defenseman who won't ever be overly expensive to keep on the roster. A guy you can depend on in his own zone, and can help the offense on the rush etc.

I think everyone will be happier with him when he can settle into a middling role that he should be in once we get more real D-men on the team. Gilbert was just the first step in that direction.
