Willie Mitchell?

 

Just been reading around a bit and have come up with some speculation.  I notice that Mitchell hasn't been scooped up yet and realised this is the type of player that JR could well target - Mitchell had a bad season ending hit from Malkin in January and maybe still experiencing some post concussion syndrome, hence why teams may be passing over him.

This may open the door for JR to sign him on the cheap a few weeks down the line?  I definitely would not be upset if we could sign him, he seems solid in his own end and could fulfil a top 4 role, two aspects our D needs.  I was also pleasantly surprised to see he has only ever had one year of a negative +/-. 

According to NHLnumbers.com he was only earning 3.5M last year with the Canucks so we should be able to get him for less if no-one else is gonna touch him.

What do people think?  Do you think it would be worth risking signing someone who may still be feeling the impact of Malkin's hit, albeit if we could get a top-4 Dman for cheap?

I certainly wouldn't argue with a D corps that looks like the follwing:

Gleason-McBain

Pitkanen-Mitchell

Babchuk-Sanguinetti

Harrison
