When are we going to dump him? $1.5 million is too much money for a guy whose max career potential is a #6 defenseman, and in reality he should be our #7 or #8 guy. We have no real need for him, and I'm sure they are plenty of teams lacking on the blueline that would take him off our hands for a late round pick.
you know, I think the Dallas Stars personel are alot higher on this guy then we are. Hes probably a pretty easy guy to like considering the effort he gives every time out and his gritty style of play... but Yeah, Ideally he would be the guy we moved out - with Norstrom and Boucher also being possibilities.
There's some teams that would take him as there #5 or #6 and considering some of the contracts during FA, shouldn't be that hard to deal him.
Not to mention some teams will have injury problems in the pre-season.
