I am just saying we need toghness for approximatly 1 month depending on the team we face ie) Atl. He would be cheap, motivated and able to be had on a two way. Even if he gets 10 minutes a game against the Eagers of the world it saves one of our young guys from getting destroyed. I am not looking for him to be a minute muncher or contribute offence.
I just figure he costs us no assets, he can ride the bench or pressbox when not needed, and when we get Greene back he can go to the minors and help protect the kids as Westgarth will be up here.
I would agree. Kings started off very strong and that helped bail them out at the end of the year when Quick was letting quite a few goals in. That start was key to getting in the playoffs. Grab some toughness and throw him in a trade at the deadline or send him down later when the team is back together and all cylinders are firing. If he has some grit, can fight and is not a defensive liability then I"m okay w/ it.
