I recall back during the Filatov trade, back when the third rounder we gave up was considered a steal, that I wondered why Columbus didn't try and get a guy like Daugavins thrown in. I thought he was a good match for the organisation, and is a malleable player who will take on whatever role is asked and do it happily.

I hope there's an NHL roster spot for him somewhere, but, talent wise, he's definitely marginal. But, as mentioned, a great teammate. Put him in a small market, and he'll build the same fan following like he did in Ottawa.
