Big deal. Boughner did not need to be here and wasn't going to provide anything that Marchment doesn't already provide. He is only good for being physical. He would be behind Marchment on the depth chart.
Who would you have taken out of the top 6 to fit Boughner in? Who would you have paired him with? How much ice-time would you have given him?
I would slot Berg, Klee, McCabe, and Kaberle in ahead of Boughner making him our #5 D-Man.
Marchment as our #6, unless Berehowsky's play warrents further attention.
Pilar can be a healthy scratch as Marchment is better suited to clearing the net and intimidating forwards.
Ah well, purely hypothetical. Like I said, I'm not going to lose sleep over it.
1ST OF ALL BOUGHNER WOULD FIT IN WITH THE LEAFS especially if we play the flyers, i keep hearing we need gonchar WROOOOONG HE IS A TERRIBLE DEFENSIVE DEFENSEMAN, WE DON'T NEED ANYMORE OFFENSIVE D-MAN, I HEAR WE NEED TOUGHNESS TO CLEAR THE FRONT OF THE NET SO SOME OF YOU CLONES ARE WANTING TO GET MORE PURSE SWINGING DEFENSEMAN,, i like to see us get witt before gonchar, also we need 2 more defenseman like marchment , only marchment is noooooo good
I would love to get Witt. He would be nearly the ideal pickup for Toronto IMHO.
Alas from all reports Washington wants to keep Witt, and isn't going to deal him unless someone way overpays for his services.
A much better pickup for Toronto then Gonchar would be.
I'd be satisfied if the only thing that happened at the deadline was us picking up Witt... I sincerely doubt he'll be moved though.
You know Lacroix is going to swoop in and get Gonchar now.
Better him then us IMHO. I don't see Lacroix chasing after a big name puck carrying D-Man though.
A guy like Sauer works better for them.
Less costly, and they've been lacking such a guy since Marchment left via UFA.
