Is that so? Funny that his 3 goals and 8 points would put him... 2nd on our team amongst defensemen behind Markov. He has a positive ratio of takeaways/giveaways... we don't have one single defenseman who can claim the same.
The fact remains that although he wouldn't be my first choice as a number 4 defenseman, he'd be quite cheap to get and would be great to pair up with Hamrlik, and he's a right handed shot with a great shot at the point for our PP.
So I may not watch hockey, but I might know a thing or two.
...and those 8 points would offset the loss of our most skilled offensive player?
