TSN reporting we signed Kevin Porter for 1 year, no money reported yet. Local guy, not sure what to think about it yet.

 

 

Edit: My only source so far - http://www.tsn.ca/nh...ature/?id=25880

 

Edit 2: Bob McKenzie reporting this is a two-way deal. He split last year between Buffalo and Rochester. Probably a signing to give the kids some competition, let them earn their spots with the big boys.

How many people here could pick this guy out of a police lineup?

 

Seems like Holland is making a move for the sake of making a move.  


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

So he's from here? Great. He can go get coffee, or knows how to drive to Grand Rapids. Thanks, KH!

 

How about a little twilight golf? Sounds good!

 

The fact that we have to look up this guy on Wikipedia means he is not the right signing.

I'm just going to throw out my theory on this which may or may not be true...
At this point Holland is getting nowhere with the targeted free agents so instead they sign this AHL'er to fill a roster spot in GR and plan to go with the kids they have. At least that what I'm hoping because this guy is NOT and NHL quality player.

I want to rub this guy's head.  He must be one lucky S.O.B to get signed by Ken Holland as a UFA.  That's twice as rare as a unicorn, at least. 


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.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

WIIM:
 

The Red Wings' most pressing need going into free agency was a top-4 defenseman, and the organization was intent on finding a right-handed shooting defenseman at that. Kevin Porter fills exactly zero of those needs. But at least he shoots left! And is a center! And went to the University of Michigan!

 

Porter will likely spend the season in Grand Rapids with a potential call-up in the event of injury. Depending on how the Red Wings plan to use Porter, this may not turn out to be a terrible signing per se. The timing of it, however, signals troubling issues on management's game plan for July 1. Kevin Porter is not a July 1 signing. There are Kevin Porter-type players to be had much later into free agency, even right up against the start of the season if need be. Just as Petr Mrazek didn't need to be extended the first day he could be, there's no reason Kevin Porter needed to be sought after and signed by today.

 

I want to sign an enforcer to protect our team from Ken Holland.

I knew him, but only because I watched him play for the Rampage 5 years ago.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

This is a September 1 signing that you make to add a body to the training camp roster, not a signing you make on July 1.

The Avs have done a terrible job this off season.  Stuart was done a year before we let him go.  Parenteau at this point is better than Briere, and Iggy won't last 3 seasons. 

 

Porter showed a few glimpses with them a few years ago, but I don't think he ever really stuck with their line up. 


There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s
