3. Berard's play - Sure, he is not great on defense. Yet, if used properly, he can help us. We can use him as a powerplay specialist who will play mostly the powerplay...while maybe playing 5-10 minutes 5 on 5 on our 3rd D pairing.


I would take a chance on him. We can get him off waivers without giving up anyone, which is nice. If he ends up playing like Ozolinsh, then we simply sit him.

EDIT: Need a link next time, please.

So let be get this straight; a lefthanded Rachunek with less vision and physical play. Is the plan to send Lundqvist into erly retirement or back Sweden? Which one?
