Nice move, recognizing our defensive problems. Should help us out on the blue line. Does anyone know when his contract is up, this could be a lil expensive for a guy who won't stick around?

At least we're not giving up a 1st rounder.

Fair price to pay, surprised he was acquired for a fair price this soon, usually at this point teams will just hang on to a guy until the deadline unless they're blown away. We needed a lot of what he brings, big shot, physical play but he's very mistake prone in his own end.

I seem to remember him being pretty gritty,

he brings, big shot, physical play.

I like the sounds of this...much needed on this team.

Don't we have someone in the press-box like him? :P

does this mean subban is going to minors ?? lol Cause you cant take out Hammer and Spacek + Gill and gorges. So Wiznewski is one spot with 1 left between Picard Subban and weber lol

Getting a little crowded in the back-end.

He's still only 26. Lets hope some of our vets can help out with that if they can, we might have a keeper.
