Chiarot isn't that good, and the $$ is too much imo. He's fine as a bottom pairing dman, but he is not better than Benn. (He is younger though.)


Chiarot is definitely better than Benn in every aspect.

I feel like MB still has moves to make on the back-end, we still need a top 2 pairing LHD. We should also target Dzingel or Ferland for the absence of Shaw, unless they plan on Suzuki as well as Poehling both making the roster their first year? Wouldn't hate to see it but worst case ontario one of them gets major development in the AlwaysHungryLeague

We don't need anymore forwards. Shaw was traded because there was no room for him. The forwards are set. I believe the defense is also set unless we plan on making a trade where we trade 2 defenders on our team for a better one. We have depth for days.

I guess it means habs are out on Gardiner then. Or maybe they never were interested.


Oh no. That means the jets are one of the 3ish teams left who are in on him. Please no jets. PLEASE. We do not have the cap structure

3.5 per does seem a little high but I like him.
He is a solid D man.

Looks like for sure they are out on Gardiner though.

Not really. Physical defender that compliments Petry perfectly. The AAV isn't bad for a 2nd pairing defender.

He had a decent year with points too....a physical stay at home D who got 20 points, never on the PP...


Wasn't he a 3rd pairing d-man at best?

Looks like a roster that won't make it past the first round

No, the last few years he was on the 2nd pair with Byfuglien...hence why his point totals have gone up each year.

Well in that case it's a big loss (another one) to the Jets. You think they're after Gardiner now?

If he wants 3M per year....By the looks of it it will be Morrissey, Niku, Kulikov and Beaulieu on the left side...Potentially either Kulikov or Niku on the right at that....Pending if the Jets trade for a RD

I don't know how much his numbers were affected by deployment and who he was on ice with, but I'd be cautiosly optimistic about this as a Habs fan. The term is a bit worrying, but not terrible. By all logic this should work fine.

Chiarot is a possession black hole. Benn was a possession machine last year.
