I don't think it's why he was brought in, but he skates better than Allen, Beauchemin, Souray, Hendry and Guenin. And he has a better break out pass than a few of those guys. A pairing of Allen-Lovejoy is gonna move the puck better than Allen-Guenin/Hendry in case of an injury. In that sense he helps the transition out, that's really all I meant... Our depth was lacking mobility, unless Vatanen and/or Lindholm are going to be in the lineup frequently which I doubt.
