We all saw how effective a pest can be. Tyson Nash had a huge impact on the game against Phoenix.
Webb is a big time hitter, a cheap shot artist at times, and a guy who likes to stir things up. He also sticks up for his teammates. I remember how he destroyed Tucker with a clean hit after Tucker took out Peca's knee. Not to mention he had great success with LaPointe on the island.
Webb probably would have only played in 40 games for us, and been our 13th or even 14th forward. It would have been nice to have his pest abillity, and energy inserted into the lineup when we get into lulls.
As for the Pens, while there is no rule against what they did, it was low and weak. They tried to get Webb and he didn't want to sign with them. The Flyers want him and get him, and they snatch him off waivers from us.
