    Yeah, everything I keep reading just gets me more excited to see him play. I know nobody is over the moon with a couple of bottom six players...However, I also don't think fans get how ****ty our bottom six was pre-deadline. I think Stewart, caveat being motivation, can slot anywhere in our lineup and help. Shore sounds like an ideal 4th line C and hopefully this means Stajan is moved to the wing or eating popcorn. For what it's worth, I've actually like Stajan's game lately, I'd just like to see what Shore can do in that role. Anything to improve our bottom six would be a serious boon to our playoff chances. Hopefully these guys are an upgrade!

    Getting Shore for a 7th could be a steal. Dorion must have felt bad for bending Treliving over in the Lazar deal.

    Stajan - Shore - Lazar
    Would be a really good 4th line. Two guys who are defensively responsible. One spark plug; all three guys have had finish in their lifetime at one point of time.

    Shore doesn't have a number listed on CF.com yet, but in his career he has worn #21 (LA), #23 (Ottawa & DU), #37 (LA & Manchester). Based on that, I would assume he goes #37 and #21 and #23 are taken.
