I have seen Bieksa well over 100x and he is the only guy that comes close to being as overrated as Neon Deon Phaneuf. He has some occasional flashes of talent on the PP and some rare good plays in his own end but his physical game consists of jumping equal or smaller players who have limited fighting ability. He runs from confrontations with anyone slightly larger than him and anyone who has fighting experience. I often find myself being embarrassed for him.
We have PK who embarrasses himself and the team often enough we don't need more of that in Bieksa without the upside that PK brings.
Yeah Pk is an ebarassment being nominated for taht Norris trophy and all.

Too weak defensively and a poor work ethic, there is a reason he is the biggest player in the NHL. Not worth what he would cost(in assets) or his cap hit.

They need budget relief... I just don't know what to send back to them.

Maybe even trying to see if they have any interest in dealing RFA David Rundblad (just like they traded Turris for him, when his development stunted and the hold out occurred). Rundblad is 22 years old and has the time to turn into a quality d-man.
The future of the d-core is partly here and there are a bunch of young guys on the way who deserve a chance, why bring in somebody from outside who will cost a lot and will block their path?

Bournival is much stronger on skates though, Sutter isn't very big. Tall and skinny.
