He has been a much better goalie during his career than his places of playing have suggested; he should have been in the NHL with Toronto - he's never played as poorly as Toskala did in ANY environment during his entire career; and he should have had the backup job in Detroit in 2011-12 - Conklin was a stupid signing I said wasn't going to happen because he was washed up, and was stunned when it did. I did predict Colaiacovo, and the Weiss interest; when the rumors of Detroit scouts at Buf/Fla were first out, I called that Detroit was interested in Weiss and is either showcasing Tatar or has him on hand because someone else is leaving.

I'm kind of surprised Feaster didn't grab Mursak. He would have worked well for Hartley.
We already have to many forwards when healthy and are at 49 contracts Mursak doesn't give us anything we don't already have.
