I'd like the RD next year to be Myers, Sekera, Weber. Weber's had few issues playing RD as a lefty shooter.

He may be a career 3rd pairing/PK defensemen... but he's demonstrated enough to show me that he will be a career NHLer. He brings some of the qualities we always whine about lacking.

3 yrs / 7 million / 2.333 per
I think he's a younger Montador, albeit a lefty.

It's a joke that he was scratched for so long last season for Gragnani, and then scratched again to start this season. He'll be a solid 3rd pair guy that brings some toughness. Anybody that can go flying face first into the end boards and get right back up and skate off is my kind of player (cue Robert Duvall giving the wounded VC water and then taking it away from Apocalypse Now). That was from his first stint late in the 07-08 season at Boston.
great movie.

I'd do 3/$6M or 4/$8M.

He just turned 25. Buy 1 or 2 UFA years.
