I think it's safe to say the Senators have already won the day locking up Mike Lundin on a one-year, one-way contract paying 1.15M$.*endless laughter*But seriously, after looking up Lundin's numbers this may actually prove to be a decent signing for a depth defenseman, especially if the alternative was bringing back Matt Carkner.While he only played 17 games in the NHL last season due to abdominal injury, his recent tenure with Tampa shows him playing against decent quality of competition - comparalble and in some cases higher than what Karlsson and Kuba faced last year. His zone-starts have also averaged in the low 40's which goes to explaining why his possession metrics don't jump off the page.SeasonAgeTmGPGAPTSCORSI QOCZSCORSI RELPIMSS%ATOI 2007-08 23 TBL 81 0 6 6 -0.226 50.4 -4.6 16 33 0.0 13:48 2008-09 24 TBL 25 0 2 2 0.224 38.5 -8.4 4 8 0.0 16:39 2009-10 25 TBL 49 3 10 13 1.270 43.0 -8.9 18 42 7.1 21:57 2010-11 26 TBL 69 1 11 12...
