Thanks for info. I always make that mistake with Bieksa...thinking he's 6'3!!
And it's comforting to know from you that Dalton is not a (sometimes) liability on D like Wiz (sometimes only, not always...always for example would be Weber!).

If Thrower ends up anything close to a Bieksa (nasty reliable dman...at times inconsistent but has shown he can be solid in playoffs)...I'm one happy Hab fan.

Great time to be a Hab fan (Galchenyuk, Tinordi, Beaulieu, Gallagher, Ellis, Collberg, Thrower, Bennett...and more!!).
