The Pens have suffered for it too, their defense has been swiss cheese for the last couple of years.

Scuds is a freaking warrior, and savy vet. But like all hockey players, when your role changes, or you add minutes to your load (players struggle).

Scuds will be back to one of the best defenders on the team once the lineup is set and healthy.

He is not even playing that bad, just a tad slow, and getting beat more than normal.

But it's Scuds, when has the guy ever completely fallen off the map?

Never.

Also if he resigns for 3.5m....That will be the cheapest you get a Defender of his experience and caliber.

Regardless of what some people think, guys like Scuds don't grow on tree's.

Everyone keeps talking about how easy (defensive defenders are to replace).

Well how well is that working out for the Kings this year ?
The Kings are currently 8th in the league with 2.48 goals allowed per game. I'd say it's worked out pretty well.
