In a jam, I'd be alright with re-signing him (for a reduced price), but it's definitely not the top-4 defenceman we need.
Same problem with Pothier as Foster in reality. We have a nice 5, 6 combo, can he play top 4? Probably not.
@Spez> if you're looking at a 'tweak' specifically for the Senators, when looking at this list, you're probably not looking for a Top 4 guy...rather someone to stabilize the 5/6 pairing or add something to special teams and who doesn't tie you up long term.
You're right. There's a regret there that we didn't get Foster in the off-season, but you're right, this isn't the kind of tweak we need.
