    Depth D. Left handed. Played with Karlsson for a stretch with Ottawa.

    Maybe backup if Smith still sucks and the prospects are not ready?

    Weird signing to me, and not because he isn't good. It's weird because he's a very good player and should be in a top 6, but where are we going to play him? Defends well, moves the puck well and hits a lot (158 hits last season). Reminds me of Stralman in style.

    If he’s «very good» he will have no problem finding place in our top 6.

    Yeah but we're not going to be very good and I would rather be giving those minutes to guys like Lindgren or Hajek.

    Or those guys can play 20+ minutes a night in Hartford instead of 13 with the Rangers...that's roughly 530 extra minutes of game experience over a season

    Lindgren and Hajek are bound to start in AHL. This guy is fine as a 7th, otherwise

    Even on our trash defense...

    Shattenkirk, Skjei, Staal, Smith, DeAngelo, Pionk, Gilmour, Hajek, etc.

    I don't know if he's a top 6 in the NHL. A 7th or depth guy? Maybe.

    I can't really speak to how good or bad he is, but appealing to authority for Ottawa on player valuation? Not a good look.

    ?? Ottawa has been bad at player evaluation? They have been pretty good over the last few years. Not sure why you'd think otherwise. They have kinda gotten more out of less. Them rebuilding and trying to figure out what to do with Karlsson isn't some sort of failure based on player evaluation.

    I think they recoup and become relevant again before the Rangers do.

    Just in the last few years, they brought in Dion Phaneuf, traded Mike Hoffman for Mikkel Boedker, and traded Jonathan Dahlen for Alex Burrows, who they just bought out. They're no Montréal, but I've got a lot of questions.

    Just read he is Zibanejad's best friend. I don't know what that means, but in case anybody cares.

    Next option to play alongside DeAngelo (or even Shattenkirk) if Smith continues to struggle. Could be a deadline asset as well.
