As for being a "good signing", how is this signing any different from the Sabres' signing of Scott? Both are one-dimensional additions, brought in for toughness alone. Maybe the Sabres are going a bit overboard in making sure they have enough options in the organization to stand up to any intimidation i.e. the Lucic incident but that seems exactly what most Sabre fans have argued as being a deficit for the past 4-5 years since the NHL went away from skill & finesse.
Ive seen him numerous times playing in the KHL with his pathetic Vityaz buddies doing cheaps shots,attacking weaker players,hitting goalies etc.
