He was effective for the Habs. He came in at a time when the Habs needed exactly what he could provide, some faceoff reliability (not excellence - but experience and reliable effectiveness), and general defensive awareness. He looked like he might be able to chip in a little more than he did, he got around the ice just fine, but it never quite went in for him (not like his previous stint with us where he was chipping in offense with regularity). Good player to have on hand. Habs didn't have room, but I can readily imagine them ending up wanting a reliable #4 center again at some point later this season and wouldn't have minded having Halpern back at that time.
