Guys on expiring contracts on non playoff teams.
Good question.

I think that when you're bringing in complimentary pieces, they don't have to be guys who carry your team. They need to be useful members that help your team.

Case in point, Jeff Halpern. Cast off from the Rags but has done his job well on a good team. Takes important face offs, gives Plex a break on the PK and brings a high energy game with his limited minutes and chips in offensively.

On the surface he's a 4th line scrub but on a good team the things he does helps give better quality time to the more talented members. We need more guys like that for the playoffs who can contribute and take some of the work load off the more talented players.

Who are they? That's why managmenet gets paid the big bucks!
