I would love him on Calgary except I dont think it can be done without trading Barctschi and thats one of the only Flames I dont want to trade.
How about Bouwmeester+1st 2014+Backlund for Datysuk? Or is more needed?
My mistake, he has an average around 1 hit per game..not to bad. He just had 14 PIM so I thought he was soft..
Which is why stats don't tell the whole story. Brad Stuart doesn't rack up the PIM, but he isn't soft by any stretch. He can hit and is a very solid defensive defenseman.
Saying Pavel doesn't use the body just proves that people don't watch him play. He is one of the toughest players to play against. Not only because of his skills and dangling ability, he protects the puck very well. You don't need size to by physical.
