Better than a skill-free goon like Konopka but I'd rather have Ott. Interesting signing nonetheless.
I kinda like this signing. he's cheap and he adds Babs flexibility to use a player of this type once in a while.
as for opinions about his play... can't say that I've watched a lot of him recently, but I remember him from
the Preds-Wings 2008 playoff series as being the hardest working guy on their team. not just dishing
questionable hits etc. but simply fighting for all the pucks. is he like this AD 2012-13? dunno.
but I certainly would love an inspired gritty player on this team. for $0.6M a year it's a low risk, high reward
scenario. what's not to like?
EDIT: it's $1.9M per year not for all 3. not cheap for a 4th liner (even with the new cap) but I hope
he earns his money...
