I think this is a great pickup. Solid guy, even if he's a bottom pairing guy in the long run. Brings a lot of size that we desperately need.

Curious what this does to our expansion list though.

We have to use a protection spot for Graves now, so I wonder if this means Subban is left unprotected…..

Don't know enough about Graves to have an opinion on this but at least he's not related to Adam.

Yeah, considering how charmin ultrasoft this team is, I’ll take a guy that’s 6’5” and willing to hit and fight.

oh and he isn’t Matt fvcking Tennyson

We're going to have a big f'ing defense in a few years.   Not sure if they can defend or make a half decent outlet pass but they will be big.

He hits and blocks shots, I snagged him in fantasy two seasons ago cause of it. Not that it means sh!t for us but again, it’s something to move the needle a little rather than the Colton White signing, right @MadDog2020 (I think it was you that had the initial “who gives a fvck” about the signing)

The rest of this defense is going to get exposed even worse if they have to take the minutes Subban plays and gets beat up by the fans for.    

I think (read: hope) we do something to incentivize Seattle taking Johnsson.

They might take him regardless. They could see last season as just a down year (plus he had COVID real bad). He’s a former 20 goal scorer with good advanced stats, so I could see them viewing him as the best option from us. Him or Subban.

I hope that's who goes as well but not sure I want to send them anything.   Other than Fitz making himself look bad, is there a reason we can't just leave Siegenthaler available?   Depending on the type of year he has, Subban is worth a late 2nd at worst and late 1st at best at the trade deadline if we're out of it.

I really doubt Kraken taking Subban, even if he's only making 2 mil in actual salary.  Because he still 9 mil against the cap.

In would take him if I were them because of the value I think he has at the trade deadline...and he's marketable

Unless they need to make the floor…I don’t know if that’s an issue or not, but if it is, a guy like PK who is also marketable might be the perfect selection.
