Fraser's been a nice surprise as a pure #6 dman, but i have to say he's started to look a bit out of place since jake and liles went back in. suddenly fraser's lack of speed is starting to stick out like a sore thumb.
that being said he's still effective in his role and won't be coming out of the lineup anytime soon.
I know Reimer wouldn't be happy if he's out of the lineup, he's like his bodyguard out there, when the play stops he stands over Reimer and just looks around to see if anyone wants to cause any trouble for James. Fraser is a definite keeper, great pickup.
We have too many decent bottom 6 Dmen but no top pairing physical Dmen. I think it is time we made a trade for one. Obviously for next year.
Fraser is a decent Dman but really, on a great day he is a top4 Dman. Most of the time he fills out the bottom6 very nicely. I would not be opposed to trading him and a few prospects for top2 physical, stay at home defenceman that will pass the puck to Phanuf who will take it out of our zone.
