I was surprised, but Timander was quite physical tonight, he also hit a post. He was very solid for not having practised with the team and for only being a depth defenseman. Personally, I think if he is capable of playing the way he did tonight, he will take Therien's spot when Rags and Desjardins are healthy.
About the big bucks for a depth defenseman, we have Therien, so Timander is a freakin' bargain.
