+49 for his career. That can't be bad, right?

Since when did the phrase "depth signing" become synonymous with "mediocre hack destined for 3rd pair or bottom 6"?

ASSETS: Plays a safe brand of hockey that keeps the mistakes to a minimum. Is very dependable and will play through injuries. gif.gif FLAWS: Lacks the overall skills to contribute on offense consistently. Does not use his good size nearly enough. Is injured a lot. gif.gif CAREER POTENTIAL: Depth defenseman.

 

So you're telling me we have Ericsson 2.0? I certainly hope we didn't just bring in another 200+lb player that plays like he weighs 102.

Spent a lot of time injured for the Blues last season. Just what we need - another addition to the Zombie line.

How the f*** did it come to this?  "There's lots of opportunity for young guys to take a step up and improve their game.  But if they don't, rest assured that we've got no other options".  Awesome.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.

This is Ken Holland's idea of reinforcements? Kent Huskins? I'm speechless...


"I can't believe I shook this guys frickin' hand. We lost and I'm pissed off. But to see Kris Draper's face makes me sick. I didn't see his face until after the game, but his face is turned sideways. If the league doesn't do something about that ... I mean that's ridiculous. He could have broken his fricken neck."

Holland doesn't like guys who stick up for their teammates and play a physical brand of hockey.

 

Just be happy we actually signed Tootoo, but any more grit and Holland wouldn't be able to sleep at night.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

My thought as well. Likely Vandermeer couldn't make it by tonight, but IMO he would have been a better option for the season.

What gives you this idea?
