He's been exactly what we need for the third pairing. Experienced and stays at home, blocks shots, can clear a crease and be physical enough. Most importantly he doesn't make mistakes. You don't notice the guy. Kinda like Stuart minus the occasional huge hit. 

 

I like him a lot.

He's fit in perfectly for us. Really liked what I've seen will be a real good 7th guy this season.

I like this signing for the money. he is very dependable and is a physical guy. Our D is getting killed and I thin he is a veteran guy who can calm the waters back there. For under a million, this was a good choice given we need someone RIGHT NOW. I hope Kenny is looking for a Top D man, but until that gets done, I am happy to embrace a defensively responsible player wearing the winged wheel. We need some stability....so welcome to Motown Huskins![/quote][/quote]
I liked this signing last week....I love it now! He has been a whole lot more than I expected!

I think part of it is that he knows his role. He's been around the block and doesn't expect to be any higher on the depth chart. Or if he does he knows it's not likely and is alright with it. Thus allowing him to just play how he needs to play. Whereas a guy like Kindl looks sometimes like he's trying too hard to play himself into the second pairing. I think we saw Ericsson doing the same thing a few years ago. When you feel like you have something to lose, or something to gain, and you let it get in your head you will screw up big time. It's when you let go and play loose that everything flows smoothly. When you hear the ol' saying that sports is mostly mental, that's accurate as hell. It is. 

 

Look at E when he came up from GR in that playoff run-he had nothing to lose, he knew he was going back down soon. He just played loose and it showed. Look at Lashoff-he has to know his time here may be limited. It's more realistic that he gets sent to GR soon and I think he's playing loose. I love that he's been so steady and his quick feet have impressed the hell out of me, but I want to see what happens when he's up full time and has something to lose. 

 

Time will tell, as always.

Huskins and Lashoff have been the best defenders and have played half as many games as the others. Who saw that coming?
