Would you be interested in having him play for the Habs? I was pretty surprised when I saw him traded by the Flyers, I thought he was untouchable there. The past few years when the Habs played the Flyers, every times we had trouble on the ice, it was always because of Handzus, his size and his physical play. It was unbelievable how every shift his line was on the ice we would stumble like fools. This kind of big physical guy with some skills that happens to be a centerman are rare. I think he would have been a perfect fit here.
The guy is slow as hell ... I am talking Jason Allison slow.
Not surprised he lost a lot of his effectiveness last year in the faster NHL.
Or could his play have been the effect of a bad shoulder injury that he played through?
As slow as he is, he was the best two-way forward on the Flyers last season. Led all Flyers forwards in SH ice time and played in every key defensive situation. Never makes mistakes on the ice. Also had 44 points which is not to bad for a defensive player. Not a bad season for a guy not as effective in the "new NHL".
