As soon as I read this I confess I immediately thought of OKT and cringed. (I've seen very little of Melart, so I don't have much data to work with...)

I've suspected from the start that he's here to be the #7 guy so others can develop.

Oh, and the rationale that we need PK types is a little silly. Special teams of all kinds - PK and PP both - is where JMFJ particularly shines. We certainly wouldn't turn such players down out of hand, but it's not exactly a glaring deficiency on the blueline here.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
