No team that has ever gone on a Stanley Cup run has got to the end and complained it had too many defencemen.

Adding Giordano, a Toronto native who is in the last year of a contract that comes with a cap hit of $6.75 million US, would amount to more than bringing another body into the defence corps.

The experience and leadership qualities of the 38-year-old would be a boon for any National Hockey League club that thinks it can go deep into the spring.

“He has been a very good player in the league for a long time,” Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe said about Giordano when the Kraken was in town to face the Leafs last week. “He’s versatile and helps teams in all sorts of ways. He has great character.”

In 55 games with the expansion Kraken, Giordano has 23 points and has averaged 21 minutes 29 seconds of ice time a game. With the Leafs, he wouldn’t be pressed into tougher minutes, and would be of better value if his minutes hovered in the range of 18 a game.
