Now they don't have to worry if Crosby gets injured again.

Now Wings and Pens fans will have something to rally around together - bitching about Jason Williams.

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.

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?

Apparently Holland is capable of Jedi "mind tricks", and got Shero to sign Williams.

all justified ridicule aside guys, is it fair to say that Raffi Torres ruined Jason Williams career?
