Hard to estimate the value of getting out from under the cost of the Lombardi contract; it was about actual out-of-pocket dollars, not cap-space. We had a bunch of similar Dmen; Co*y is the one they settled on - don't know if that was the one DP wanted or if it was what Burke wanted.
However, on a more offensively gifted team than ours in a considerably higher ice-time role, Co*y did an OK O job; but just like last night, his awful (lack of) D cannot be overcome, no matter how nice an O game he plays. 4th season, still has to play PP and protected 3rd-pair minutes; how would that work, exactly - Gill and Co*y?
