I really believe Brian Rafalski is a great comparison. The Devils paired Rafi with Scott Stevens, just a beast of a defensive defenseman and it worked out brilliantly. We paired Rafalski with Lids and that worked to perfection until his knees gave out. I very much want to see us sign Billins and then pair him with a very good defensive d-man who can also block shots and PK. I think an organization like Detroit is a perfect fit for a guy like Billins and if he's used properly people across the league will ***** about Detroit once again having a very high level player drop into our laps.
