Who cares about Halpern's skating at this point? We have a bunch of excellent skaters on the team, and great speed up front and on the blueline. Sometimes you have to sacrifice in areas of strength to strengthen areas of weakness. A slow 4th line center isn't going to do much damage to the team overall, but his ability to win key faceoffs and play great defense, especially on the PK, will help the team big time. And if Dubinsky and/or Anisimov are dealt, they are going to need someone to step up and kill some penalties. Halpern is one of the best in the business.
