    My first thought was "who?". But the couple of posts in the main board thread were complimentary, so I' guess I'll just have to do some research.

    28yrs 6'3", 195lbs

    Assets:
    Has a very projectable 6-3 frame. Boasts a good shot from the point and hockey sense in all three zones. Produces good numbers and can be used as a power-play quarterback at lower levels.
    Flaws:
    Is not a great defender and struggles with consistency at the National Hockey League level. Lacks ideal bulk for his 6-3 frame. Could stand to become a little more aggressive and mean.
    Career Potential:
    Depth defenseman.

    Jets fan here: Postma's a very good and mobile 3rd pairing defenseman - Jets had no room on the right side for him though, so I'm a bit confused about why Boston would grab him given your RH depth. Who would he displace in your line-up?

    In any event: he's a very useful piece, and I wish him the best with you guys.

    He's been suffering on the Jets because in my opinion the coaching staff doesn't really know how to evaluate players properly and so he's behind some obviously worse players in the depth chart and as such his overall value and general perception appears to be low.

    But in my opinion this is an absolute steal and he's an above average third pairing guy.

    postma seems more like a McQuid replacement, or at most a #7 defenseman type.

    Now I guesss it could still be they deal Carlo, and play McQuaid and Miller, with Postma as the #7

    Unless there is a right shot D moving out I'm not sure I understand this. I mean it's one year and short money, just not sure I get it

    They view Kevan Miller as a left side d and postma is the 7.

    I know little about him but Winnipeg fans seem to be high on him, a lot of them saying he's good on the main board.

    A very good signing for you...he was always under-utilized in winnipeg as the coach didn't seem to like him. Has decent offensive potential.

    They do?

    I think they view miller as a 2nd pairing d man and mcquaid and postma as 3rd pairing rh d. Spelling each other or mcavoy if he has a slump

    I'm thinking this means either McQuaid goes to create cap space (for a minor trade?) or Carlo goes in a trade for a bigger UFA.
