Maybe he meant Steve Kasper

Now you're stuck digging into the ranks of washed-up defensemen.

Leetch would be a good pickup by flyers.. But three things come into factor...



1.Age
2.Mobility..... Desire to play another season.
3.How much he wants.. because he isnt worth the "big" contract anymore

Where is hockeyprincess when you really need her for a case of irony!

You're not providing much of a voice of reason here.

Why would you want to sign a guy with concussion problems, who clearly had problems adapting to the new style of play, for more than double what he made the previous year (that he barely played in)?

Spending $5 million on Kim Johnsson a season made NO sense for this team.

It's not just a case of "well these other defensemen suck so let's ditch them for a more expensive player that might be better next year". I'd much rather have all the young RFAs signed and make cheaper additions like Calder, Sanderson and the inexpensive defensive additions which are just as much a crapshoot as Johnsson would have been.

Kim had concussion problems? Since when? he had one concussion in his career from what I know. What problems did he have adapting? He had a bad season playing with Hatcher Rathje Therian. This is way overblown.

When you have PCS for half a season plus most of the summer, that is called a problem.

And everyone here recognized how poorly he played before he was injured and it had nothing to do with who he was paired with.

If being paired with Rathje makes you suck, I guess Pitkanen was brutal last season. And I guess if being paired with Hatcher makes you suck, Meyer had the worst rookie season known to man.

Johnsson was paired with Hatcher - and this was during the time before Hatcher was injured and wasn't completely useless. He just didn't play well.
