#2528069 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Larry Brooks @NYP_Brooksie 1m

Might have missed it having been reported but told that Havlat has deal wirh Devils for one year $1.5M

 

Good.  No Hvsplat in a Wings jersey.


Didn't work in Minny.  Worked well in Buffalo. 

 

Vanek to MTL. Didn't work.  Probably will do okay in Minny.

 

Isles, as usual, lose out all around.  Snow is the WORST!

 

Poor John Tavares.

Good deal on Moulson.  Very cap friendly.

George Malik @georgemalik 46s

NINE MILLION DOLLARS FOR ROBIDAS AT 37 WITH REPEATEDLY BROKEN LEGS? THANK YOU FOR SAYING NO KENNY I THINK.

 

For once, I agree with his analysis.

 

Problem is, if Kenny HAD signed him, Malik would have had a blog post out tonight explaining why it was such a shrewd move and going on and on about how "with just a little luck" it'll be a genius acquisition. 

 

He's never wrong because he never commits to anything until after it already happens.

He's a work-horse though.  Where Vrbata is known for "taking games off," Moulson is not.  Additionally, he'll go to the dirty areas even though he's not a big guy.  Same size as Vrbata, and he's not soft -- for sure.  I watched enough Isles games to see that.

 

Wouldn't mind Vrbata either though.  Definitely think those guys are worth the look.

 

I'll take your word for it.  Admittedly I've only ever seen Moulson when Detroit was in the west and played the odd game again NYI.  Thanks for the info.

A couple of these contracts have been bad, but not terribly so.  As I already said, nothing like the Clarkson, Clowe, or Horton contracts of a year ago.

Orpik to Washington should add a little spice to the Pitts-Wash games.  At long last, he'll get a chance to hit Crosby.

I've lived here for 10.  (Specifically in Brooklyn) It's definitely losing it's shine.  :D

 

Move to DC.  We'll catch a game together.

Except if Holland signed Hemsky, everyone on this forums would want him crucified. 

 

I don't want him either.  He doesn't fit here.  We've got skilled, playmaking, forwards here.  But he's a good signing in Dallas.

Anybody doubt that Nill being aggressive this year and last will make his team more desirable to free agents going forward?

So far Dallas is having a good day.  Spezza and Hemsky for prospects, picks, and cash.  Not too shabby.

Elliotte Friedman
@FriedgeHNIC

Dan Boyle also got a NMC from NYR...

 

 

I think it goes without saying KH offered him one of these as well.

Atleast Holland has been busy resigning players..

 

This is a very legit point.  I have nothing to complain about as far as the Sheahan and Mrazek signings are concerned. 

 

If I'm going to criticize, I better be willing to complement as well.

Soooo...nobody wants to come here anymore? What's a deal?

 

We barely make the playoffs each year, get our asses kicked in the first or second round, and target mediocre players as a solution?

Well the Erhoff deal was clearly a “sign here for a year for a chance to be Crosby’s boyfriend/win a cup” sort of thing. 

 

Apparently so was the Boyle signing.  Only I'm not sure who he's romatically linked to.

IF that's the case.  I hope he does just stand pat because while maybe not ideal, it is still a choice.

 

I agree.  I'd rather go with what we have and kids than lose Tatar to Buffalo in a trade for Meyers.
