    They like the way he has been flopping and diving this year so they decided to extend him.

    This is a smart move by manaement. This is a sign management is thinking and planning about how their young d men in the farm system wil be integrated into the NHL clud. This veteran D man will help the younger d men when they get promoted. I mean he’s not the greatest, but offers steady play game in and game out.
