FYI Finley's a big, stay-at-home defenseman who can be physical and will fight; conversely, he has slow feet and will contribute little offensively outside of a first pass.
At this point that may be just what the DR ordered for this team. Granted, a thirty point man from the back line couldn't hurt. OTOH this team was amongst the worst in the league as far as keeping the puck out of their own net. I think Tampa, Toronto and Columbus were the only teams to allow more goals last season.
