Some info about him:
26y, 6'2", 233lbs
15:39 TOI/G
23 GP
4 A
83 hits
51 blocks
14 Gva

In comparison, the stats of Lydman, Scuderi & Hejda:

Toni Lydman
35y, 6'2", 213lbs
$3.000m (UFA)
19:22 TOI/G
34 GP
0 G
6 A
80 hits
74 blocks
18 Gva

Rob Scuderi
34y, 6'1", 216lbs
$3.400m (UFA)
21:59 TOI/G
47 GP
1 G
10 A
27 hits
63 blocks
40 Gva

Jan Hejda
34y, 6'4", 237lbs
$3.250m (through 14/15)
19:33 TOI/G
44 GP
1 G
9 A
93 hits
98 blocks
29 Gva

The "problem" with all of those would be their age. If I had to chose one of those, it'd be Hejda.

Would be interesting to know if Fistric's capable of averaging around 20 mins per game, cause he only played 20+ minutes once this season, but in terms of physicality, he shouldn't be that far away from Emelin.

What about guys like Ron Hainsey (UFA), O'Byrne (UFA) or Mark Stuart (through 13/14)?
I would be all to build a package to get both Hejda and Bordeleau from Colorado. It shouldn't cost too much since Col needs help and it would be a rather small move that could have a bigger impact than we think.

I would be willing to give someone like Ellis or Didier or Thrower (Habs have other prospect d-men) + a second round pick. I'm not sure it's enough, but it would have Col listening for sure. Completing the package wouldn't be a problem, I think.
