Outstanding acquistion. Solidifies defense, more importantly helps solidifies the room.

I like it, assuming the terms aren't crazy.

He can still skate, and Trotz has an impeccable track record with defensemen.

He has seriously regressed recently. I really hope this is a signing for the 3rd pairing (with 3rd pairing money), but I doubt it.

Not bad. Feels like an erksine replacement a bit. Need another D.

Like this. We need toughness back there and if he gets to play with Green adds stability.

IINM analytics types that don't like him should really look at his CorsiRelQoC.

Depends on term and $. He's a definite improvement on the 3rd pairing, but expecting him to play 2LD next to Green is a mistake. The problem with using money on this, is it still ideally leaves the healthy D looking something like this:

Alzner - Carlson
XX - Green
Orpik - Orlov

Maybe they have something up their sleeves with a Green/Stralman or Niskanen signing, but I'm not holding my breath.

Well Orpik is in his mid-30s and has 92 career playoff games. I'm going to assume Mike Green led Caps d-men in that department before this signing, and he had 57. fwiw

5 years is a little scary. That will take him to 39 or 40, iirc. He just got married in 2012 so probably settling down in general and looking for that last cash-in. Maybe he traded some dollars for term but hope he comes back revved up and with snarl.
