No doubt that Dion is a more physically intimidating presence on the back line....which is something I agree the team really needs. I just think back to the series with the Caps, when we went on to the ECF two seasons ago.

Giradi did a very nice job against Ovi in that series. I'm not so sure Dion would have performed as well. Maybe an imperfect metric, but it's a very debatable point to be sure.
