The worst anybody can say about Aucoin is that he is a solid 2 way defenseman who can log an unholy amount of minutes and is a great clubhouse leader. Did Kenny Jonsson make him look better than he really is? Probably.

Is he worth $4 million? It depends on how bad you need defense and how much cap room you have.

I'd accept that.

Rathje can patrol the Toronto blue line whenever he wants.

AUCOIN RECEIVES OFFERS FROM MONTREAL, ATLANTA AND COLUMBUS. It appears the Islanders are on the verge of losing another defenseman. On the first day of the NHL's free agency season, Adrian Aucoin received three offers - Montreal, Atlanta and Columbus - that would pay him $16 million over four years. The Islanders offered him $13 million over four.

Aucoin last night was mulling the offers and had no comment

so you tell me.
Statistics don't mean anything. Caber may score more points but you have to consider the teams each play on. The Isles are exactly the Oilers of the 80's and the last time I checked their number 1 center wore #79 not 99.

Aucoin plays 30 minutes a night and is a rock on the blueline who makes far less mistakes than McCabe. He also has a cannon of a shot which would boost any powerplay.

Aucoin can play on our top line next

to the rock that is named Adam Foote. You want defense, Dougie Mac is going to buy defense.

You don't think Foote came over intending to go it alone do you?

It says montreal is out of the Aucoin sweepstakes because he's asking for too much money. It also says Toronto is a very long shot to get him.
