I know we have an affiliate in the AHL for something but I just can't put my finger on it.

... and that list doesn't even take into account possible buyout candidates who are ALSO better than Lee.

That list should be pretty telling as to what I thought of Brian frigging Lee. Anyone who misses that guy should also be upset we got rid of Ricard Persson...
All those guys are worse offensively than Lee perhaps with the exception of Foster (who never plays). Lee outscored all of them despite playing only 55 games.

And Lee is a good deal better defensively than all of them.

Brett Clark... Mark Eaton... seriously?

Your biased hate for Lee is obvious and getting old.

Murray lost that trade and Lee could be useful right now. That's clear.

André Benoît is the best option out there imo. I think he's the best defenseman in North America that isn't/wouldn't be in the NHL if the season was happening. Better than those guys, better than Redden.
