I would as well I think he fits our system well. We don't have anyone like him on the blue line. Since we can't develop a D-man ourselves we have to get used to the idea of overpaying for other teams defensemen. We are always going to have young forwards on ELC's who can play above their contract, because we draft forwards well or scout well in Matt Read's case. So we need to put more money into our D.
