I'd like to see it, though.
I don't think anybody is expecting him or the rest of the fourth line to play at that level over a full season or for the rest of his career, but he's a useful player to have around, and we're not paying him much or committing to him for many years. It's hard to complain about his presence on the team, especially when there's no risk and he's also so likable.

We already have 8 capable NHL defencemen, no need to bring in Foster. Harrold fulfils that role better.
