I prefer Halpern's experience and the fact that I don't have to worry about him possibly costing his team the game as soon as Chris Neil looks at him the wrong way.
I prefer White's younger legs and physical side on a 4th line against Ottawa with Neil and Smith playing on the same line. Sure, there's the chance he may go bat**** insane again, but it's a risk I am willing to take if the upside is his game on Saturday in Toronto.

I dunno, maybe I'm being too harsh on Halpern, but to me it felt like he was basically filling out a jersey during the slump and bringing nothing tangible aside from FO prowess after a strong 2-3 weeks when he joined us.
