Anyone who can dance with the likes of Lucic , Orr , Parros , Belak (RIP) , S.Thornton ect and not look out of place and even win some of these fights is a badass in my mind. I don't follow the Caps all the time but from what i've seen of him in the games i watched and with the multiple videos of him dropping against top heavyweights i say that he's one tough SOB
That's what the Habs lack. A tough and physical D with size who can play decent hockey , capable of clearing the front of the net and also deal with any enforcer in the league if needs be. That's why i sort of drool over Eskrine since from what i've seen he does pretty much all that. Deryk Engelland is also a player in the same mold that i like a lot.
