He’s been a good D on a team with very few good D. Him and Zub have been a pretty decent shutdown pair (they were the reason we waltzed through Alberta), and he’s been our most reliable D when Chabot’s played with Zub. He’d probably only bring in a mid-round pick at the deadline, so I’m perfectly fine with keeping a solid defenseman on our roster for another year, especially because we don’t draw free agents very often. Should allow us to ease Sanderson in if he needs it. Very little risk with this deal, as it’s pretty cheap (significantly less than Del Zotto, who we buried with no issues), and only one year, so if age catches up to him we aren’t burned by a lengthy/expensive deal. Good signing all around.
