    Why him? There is better players that are UFA then him...
     
  4. Mirtle says he is very very good on faceoffs.

    Does he kill penalties? Going to need another body for the PK with Bozak and Bolland out.

    Much prefer him over Smith, at least he can win draws. Smith was pretty useless, I don't care how many points he put up in AHL- it didn't translate

    Was hoping for a trade but atleast the leafs got rid of Smith and now got someone as good as Bozak on the draws

    Ya he's great at faceoffs so that's probably the biggest help... he's big and he'll hit, thats about it

    Cheap replacement that we don't have to give up any assets for to play on the 4th line for probably 5 mins a night (more for PK reasons). Can also take faceoffs and then get on bench at times.

    Im fine with this.

    Watched him a lot in Nashville. He was great when he was there but looked pretty horrible in Florida.

    Knows his role and doesn't exceed it. Played well in Smashville, didn't really do anything of note in Florida. Will win big faceoffs, play well defensively, and that's about it. Zero offensive acumen. 4th line center.

    I'd say our system is much closer to Florida than Nashville, so this should be great :laugh:

    I dont care if he is good at faceoffs or not .. We need a Offensive Center not some scrub 34 year old.... Plain and simple other teams make trades when they have injuries like this .. And we sign scrub 30 somethings to fill in for a few months... Playoffs what do you mean playoffs?

    Sounds perfect for 4th line- I'm more than good with this. How's his skating compared to Steckel :laugh:

    I think he might be 3rd line C. Would imagine JVR + Kadri will center the first 2 lines.
