Now that BG is here and Breezy has simplified his game, he probably been our most consistent d-man all year. Like you said Eddy, he's a 2nd pair defenceman, it's just too bad he's paid way more than he's worth.
But I would argue that he is paid not that much more than he could be worth, given the right situation. Put him on the PP in Colorado or Detroit and I think we'd all see him in a much different light. For the same reason Koivu's stats as a 2nd line centre on one of those teams would be awesome. The problem in Montreal has been for years (since Roy)that our best players have no supporting cast.
