Marchment Signs With Toronto

Bryan Marchment has just signed a 1-year $2 Mil deal with the Leafs.

He has played in 814 career games and has accumulated in those games 38 goals and 137 assists for a total of 175 points and 2126 PIM.

He has previously played for Chicago, San Jose, Winnipeg, Hartford, Edmonton, Tampa Bay, and Colorado. The Leafs will become the eighth team he has played for in his career.

My take: The Leafs sorely needed a defenseman after Wesley left and with concern over the whole issue revolving around Svehla; they should just buy out his contract and rid themselves of this burden. He will add a welcomed physical presence but will not contribute all that much offence.
