I haven't kept up with Pisani in the past few years, but if he still plays anything like he did with Edmonton in 06 playoffs, he's a good bargain at 500k. Nice bottom 6 player who can do a little if everything. I'd rather have him at 500k then Miller or Eaves at 850k.

Edit:

Pisani's scoring stats projected over 80 games- 16 points

Miller's stats last year over 80 games-19 points

While Miller had 3 more points last year, Piani in general faced tougher competition at even strength, all while playing with far inferior linemates and less playing time. If adjusted for these situational scenarios, there is no reason to think that Pisani would not have at least equaled Miller's overall production, and most probably would have surpassed it.

In addition, Pisani's gaa for 60 minutes of Penatly Kill Time was below Miller's, while still playing on a drastically worse team. Say what you want to disagree, but it's hard to argue that Miller had that much of a better season to justify that pay raise.

Yeah, he had I think 18 points in 24 games, and was an absolute ***** to play against in that series. He's also had 2-3 15-20 goal seasons if I recall. He won't save the Hawks, but I like this signing... like a lot.

if he can stay healthy and the Collitis doesn't flare up, that's one hell of a bargain signing and could be a steal... this is a pretty damn good risk/reward signing, because if he's healthy, he's a border line top 6 guy and a great team guy from what I've read, but if he doesn't, they can IR him and it frees up the every penny of cap space they need and it's a league min contract anyways... pretty savvy signing actually imho

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

After a couple of solid seasons, the last few have been rather injury filled and below his normal level of play. Still, I think this is a great signing in terms of Risk Vs Reward. He won't hit 20 goals, but he can still be a solid thirdliner/decent pker on the Hawks, and would almost certainly be better than one of the other AHL scrubs.

Here's a link from an Oiler's columnist who also thinks this could be a minor steal.

Agreed. Hate to admit anything good about the Hawks, but this was a really smart move. I didn't even known Pisani was available. As mentioned, for 500k its a great signing based on his potential, and if he is hurt or sucks they can get rid of him easily enough.

Also its one last roster spot that would need to be filled by a rookie. Good move, but we still own the central.

I thought he was like 26 years old, turns out he's oldschool and 34.. yikes.
Think I mixed him up with another player with an Italian'ish name...Cogliano or something

UC also flares up in stress, even if it's under control. He's going into the pressure cooker, and it'll probably get worse. Hope it doesn't for his sake, but fear it will.

Yes. Hopefully all goes well for him health-wise but I can imagine Stan having some ulcers after the last few weeks.

I'll be surprised if he plays more than 41 games.

He's become cheaper than a hooker.

That illness he had has pretty much ended his career after that lucky one-month wonder in 2006, where people like Manny Legace made him look amazing.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The guy barely played over 90 games the past 3-years combined. He's also a minus player combined for -22 just in the past 3 years while barely playing over 90 games.

2008 = 56 games
2009 = 38 games
2010 = 40 games

Has he ever play a full a season? Great signing Chicago. Lol.

I hate it when people talk about a signing by pointing out how a player played 4 or 5 seasons ago. Seriously? He may very well be good, I don't know. But when I hear "if so and so plays the way they did back in '06 or '07 (or even '03 I've heard), it's a good signing" that indicates that player has done nothing since then.

His best season was in 06 where he scored 18 goals and 37 points.

Since then his production and games played have steadily gone down. Last season he was a -16 in 40 games, a career worst.

This guy is a bargain buy. Nothing much to see from this signing, good or bad.
