Good, low risk deal. He's not great, but it could be worse.

Is this guy an upgrade over Bartley?

Sounds about right. Ekholm and Ellis looked great together towards the end of the season when we were actually winning games. Have to imagine they'll start together, but anything can happen. I imagine the 2nd and 3rd pairings will get similar ice time until one pulls away from the other.

Hits and blocks shots... Should look good next to Jones.

Yeah, better than Bartley seems to be the theme here.

Yeah. This was an obvious fit. Defensive responsible shot blocker that plays the left side.

I think several of us called this possible signing.

He should do well with Ellis or jones IMO.

in practice... as a pylon.

Totally unnecessary move... No foot speed. You all hated Hal Gill, and this guy makes him look like Doughty.

With this signing, we still have a ton of cap room with only Ellis and Ekhom to re-sign

This was what I was thinking. Bartley is only on the roster because the team has no depth right now.

Volchenkov is > Bartley. He is perfect fit to slide alongside Jones or Ellis and is good on the PK.

We'll still have like $12m I think. Use it wisely. And a lot of these deals are 1 year types, Fisher will also probably retire after next season (assuming he gets healthy enough to even see the ice) which opens up more cap space.

Hopefully Ellis and Volchenkov do not get paired together. That line will get eaten up with their terrible skating.
