You should really try to watch the teams you criticize.

I think he's a good fit as our number 4. Bit much on money and term, but such is the frenzy of free agency. The way I see our D shaping up now is:

Smid-J Schultz: Give the kid our best defensive Dman to play with so he can feel more comfortable jumping up into the rush.

Ference-Petry: Petry struggled last year, but I thought a lot of it had to do with Krugers complex man to man D zone coverage and poor breakout plays. Petry will be allowed to skate the puck out of danger (his best asset) in Eakins system. Ference will earn every penny as the steadying influence on a "Jekyll and Hyde" Jeff Petry.

N Schultz/Belov/Klefbom: I personally think Klefbom is good enough to play in our top 4 now, but it sounds like they might take it slow with him. Could be Schultz and Belov to start the year. Schultz should be better in a lesser role (over used last year). Not sure about Belov. Could be legit, could just be a PP specialist.

I'm OK with that D.
