Never was a fan of having a former center coaching the defence. Sully was overrated. There's a reason he never got a HC gig after the brutal job he did with the Bruins for 2 years.

Samuelsson is a great choice for the role as he was neither a great defenceman nor was he a bum. He was a very good defenceman for many years and as a previous poster stated, his reputation has a cheap shot artist was 1000% overblown based on the Neely incident.

Samuelsson took more dirty hits than he delivered because of that reputation.

He's a guy that is going to come in and TEACH our defenceman how to play defence, from a defenceman. Learning how to play D from a center? Seriously?

Now, get the PP specialist in here to add 4-5% points to our very meager conversion rate and we should be more dangerous.

Still think our forward group is ill structured, but that's a different thread.
