between Mark Hardly and John VanCrapsmear, it's not like any of the marginal defensemen were coached well enough to say that they were playing up to their potential. Dempsey, a 7th guy for Toronto for a lot of years, went to a depleted Chicago team and excelled enough that his value became high enough for a trade to another crappy non-playoff team, where he played up/down to the level of the product on the ice. He'll be reasonably invisible in Boston. Still a 7th guy...
