I was thinking the same thing. He's steady, still mobile and has years of experience to go along with his ability to read plays, move the puck, and calm play down. If I were a Leaf fan, I'd be pleased that a former Norris Trophy winner with miles left in his tank is now on my favorite team's blueline. Not a killer, but isn't that what McCabe, Klee, and Marchment are for? I can't wait to see what their powerplay looks like with the amount of skills on display with a relatively healthy lineup.
As for the Rangers, this current housecleaning is long overdue and they continue to accumulate youngsters and picks to build a core for the future. Value aside, it's about time one of the Original Six got its act together in TV's biggest market.
