I'm happy about the signing. Decent player at a good price.

Can't wait to see the complaints that pile up over this decision by the armchair GMs 'round here.

I thought it would be Kaberle, but I cant complain about White, pretty solid for a good price.

Man I guess some people on here aren't very happy people...they complain that Holland doesn't do anything and they complain when he does something.

I personally will not say how good or bad this was until they hit the ice.

This is an adequate signing. Still think we're worse than last season as it stands though.

i have seen enough of white play with his time with the leafs. if people complain about rafalski's questionable defensive play and give away's, you ain't seen nothing yet..

You don't know anything about hockey, do you? Leafs fans, and especially Sharks fans LOVED having White. He's a very, very solid d-man and for this price, it's an absolute steal. Terrific signing, one of the best of the FA period considering how short the term is and how cheap the amount is.
