Best case scenario is that Hendricks ends up a mainstay on the fourth line. But adding salary while looking no better in goal is inexcusable. Especially when Patrick ****ing Roy couldn't keep the puck out of the net with our defense.
It remains to be seen how both players play, but in all likelihood, we're better today than we were yesterday. DD wasn't going to win us games. Scivens has the potential to. In desperate times like these, you need to take a gamble (and this is more of a low risk, high reward gamble).
Does the defense need work still? Yes. Were we going to get a top 4 dman for DD or a 3rd round pick? No.
