i won't say it was a good move, but i definitely understand what sather was doing.

we have had good luck in the past with late round picks, but the odds of a 5th rounder working out aren't reliable-- he was reliably intimidating to have on our roster(albeit not reliable on the ice) whether we played him or not. he kept teams intimidated for the few games he was in. he was available during the stretch if we ended up locking 1st in the league and wanted to protect our core. he was also there to psych ottawa out a little bit after the carkner incident during pregame warm ups.

we didn't need him during the stretch (which is honestly why i feel we picked him up). we didn't need him to replace rupper and chose not to replace bickel with him, but having him on the team was a little reinsurance in a worst case scenario and the cost was acceptable.
