Some posters in this topic prove how underrated player Kimmo Timonen is. He is not just a good puck-moving-defenceman, but also one of the best defensive players, who can blank the opposing 1st line day in day out. He is not overly physical, but he is like a pitbull, who is surprisingly strong and never gives up, and has excellent stick work defensively. Offensively he is also still very good, 6 points in 11 games. And currently he is the 5th in points for active defensemen on the career list. Also he is a good leader with almost 1000 NHL games + 300 other professional games of valuable experience under his belt. Maybe he has slowed down a little, as he is turning 38 next month, but still there's no way you could find a better dman with under 5 million dollars, as some people here would value him. Plus, it's only a one-year-deal, so what's the matter.
