Keaner is one of my favourite players of all time and he was a much better player than White, I also don't see White as a 3rd liner, he's a 4th line energy guy who can be a great presence in the locker room and a glue guy.
Give him some time to mature, I think this kid will surprise with his grit & leadership within a few years.
Hopefully, he will take some boxing lessons this summer 'cause last year, he took some beating...!
x2 Gudbranson "6,4"
Neil no need to write his size we all know he's tough as nails.............. he doesn't need boxing lessons he needs a really tough guy on his line, but he's so crazy he'd still go after the other team's tuff guy, and i think he did not look bad at all against these behemoths
Good signing. One of the few Habs on the roster with any balls. Hopefully Bergevin adds more toughness, Therrien always plays a heavyweight, and it's something Bergevin said he'd address. Nasty defenseman, Moen and fourth liner to come hopefully.
Some people don't seem to remember that Ryan White is a good hockey player who just happens to be able and willing to fight. He's not top 6 material and probably not top 9 either on most teams, but put him with Moen and any 4th line winger who can handle the puck at a respectable level, and you'll see a pleasant and slightly unexpected amount of 4th-line scoring.
