I watch a ton of Leaf games and trust me, this guy is one of the fans favourite whipping boys here in Toronto.
I dont watch a lot of Leafs games so I am sure that you know more about him than I do.

He is a player that would help the Habs in my opinion. He wouldnt be the impact player like Subban is on D but he would not be a liability in the backend. Plus, he has a good shot and is capable of chipping in a few points.
