    just a veteran presence or someone to fill in if a defenseman is moved in a deal?

    I think he’s way overrated, if I were you I’d be happy he left so your team can spend that cash on something other than a defenseman that a team like Chicago was so desperatly trying to get rid of.

    I’ll always remember him as the guy that brought the leafs Bryan McCabe. what a steal!

    we can also now add Sean Hill to the list of UFA’s acquired by Florida. Just saw it on The Score.
