    Not entirely what I thought we were looking for. The faceoff percentage is okay, and the takeaways are nice. But we still need a D man. I was really hoping for a package Getzlaf and Beauchemin.

    Beauchemin isn’t going anywhere, E. He re-upped with Anaskeim.

    with defensive upgrade being our main goal, this move can’t hurt. However would like to see a defenseman added who can log some minutes, and when is Stan going to part ways with Bickell??
