I wonder if they waive him before camp finishes, or halfway through the season.

There is not a player in recent memory I can think of that has been as much of a non-factor as Jason Williams. He's lazy, he's invisible, he's ineffective. So ineffective, in fact, that he joins and leaves teams without their fans even really noticing.

But he's got the best backhanded shootout move in hockey history!

Does anyone have an explanation of how he got to score 58 points in 2005-06? I was having a break from hockey back then so I didn't see him doing well for once.

That was a weird year for hockey. The new rules created all kinds of crazy performances that were never seen from again.

See Jonathan Cheechoo - Rocket Richard Winner

How the hell Williams got another contract is beyond me.Kopecky and Hudler are superstars for him.

quote from TSN:

Good Depth signing! Good job Shero.. Williams is a faster Talbot

You know, I never made that connection before. Very good point. A lot of those bizarre one year performances were indeed in 05-06.

Interesting. I can see that players being overly careful with obstruction and physicality creating a chance for weaker players to be productive. Any more examples than Williams and Cheechoo?

It's really just a depth signing. He won't beat out Tangradi and other prospects unless mass injuries occur.

Well just by looking at a lot of guys stat sheets their best year was in 2006. Some guys that are relative nobodies like Jarret Stoll or Ales Kotalik never got close to the numbers they put up in that year. But other guys with good reputations like Eric Staal also scored way more than they ever did again. And then there are one year wonders like Brian Gionta.

Funny though, that some guys that it seems obvious they would've benefited heavily from that year actually had big time down years, like Marty St Louis and Jarome Iginla.
