Yes I know. However, they'll need A center if they trade Dubinsky. Second-line centers do not grow on trees.

I think this is just a depth move for them and, as you said, some form of insurance if they make a trade for Nash and have to give up Dubinsky, Stepan, or Kreider in the deal. Although, if Halpern is anything other than their 4th line center/wing, then they have serious issues.

I'm sure if he knows how to flip down in front of Lundqvist he'll do fine.

Very, very true. And in case you didn't know, Rags fans and the media around here will tell you that style is unbelievably exciting to watch.

Fedotenko would've been a good signing for the bottom 6. Adequate replacement for Ponikarovsky. we couldn't have done 1 year 1.8 mil for him? instead we needed to go 2 years for barch and 3 years for the 36 year old salvador?

The Washington #Capitals have signed LW Wojtek Wolski to a one-year contract. #HNIC #CBCSports #NHL

600K for 1 year of Wolski. Heck, he'd not have been bad here even.

Without question, a better option than Sykora.

I understand the Pens are going to announce the signing of Semin in the next day or so.

1 year deal (to get a bigger payday after playing with Crosby).

This has been rumored for days now. Every day its "the next day or two". Not saying its not going to happen, but no one substantial has said a word about this except something in Russian media that isnt considered a very good source.

Apparently NHL Home Ice was actually talking about "an unconfirmed report in Russia" regarding Semin to the Pens today. Sadly the rumor has come full circle as the Russian report cites XM Radio. Mind blowing stuff... Here is the report translated from Sovietsports.ru: Russian forward Alexander Semin will sign an annual agreement with the "Pittsburgh Penguins". According to Sirius / XM radio, a 28-year-old striker has signed a contract with "Pittsburgh." The agreement will be calculated for one season. The deal is to be held today. Recall that in the last season, playing for "Washington", Semin scored 54 points (21 goals + 33 transfer).

Here's the Russian report

http://www.sovsport.ru/news/text-item/537277

Translates to: Semin signs one-year contract with "Pittsburgh"

Basically the rumor ate itself lol.

Damn, I really wanted the Devils to offer Wolski something. He could have been very good here. And for only 600K? Wow, that's like nothing.

Krys Barch got more and 50K more than Cam!

I think Wolski could've been as good as a pickup for us as Poni was.

I read this on Wikipedia, "Wolski also failed to click with the Rangers, building a reputation as a player who "would rather not play in tough areas to score", so I wonder if that was a turnoff, but for 600K its worth the risk IMO.

It's starting to look like 2012-2013 might be a tank job

Krys Barch gonna put us over the top!!!

Why go after those UFAs when we can resign two guys who can barely play hockey?

Looks like Lou's Plan B involved him saying, "Wolski and Mueller want how much? Fvck that!"

Oh well, Mueller had concussion issues and no one wants to sign players who've had a past history of concussions.

We get it carp. You don't like Lou's moves so far. Please just shut the fvck up. Every fcking thread man, come on. You're an awesome addition to the boards, but you beat that horse half to sh!t like a week ago.

It seems like all of your posts are the same rhetorical "oh we have barch so were set!!!"... Maybe I'm just thinking of the rest of the board, too.

I hope one day Lou learns how to put a team together as well as a bunch of people of this board can. :rolleyes:

Maybe he didn't sign Mueller or Wolski was because he didn't want them?? Or maybe they didn't want to come here?

Damn, Mueller too? I know I just said I wanted Wolski, but he's about 4th on the list of UFA forwards I wanted the Devils to take a chance on. Mueller's something else though, he could still really turn out to produce a lot in the future. Aside from Semin, there isn't another UFA I wanted the Devils to sign more than Mueller. Oh well, let's hope that something pans out. I'm not sure what to think of Huselius, but at this point, it's worth the risk, in my opinion.

Getting kind of nervous for this season now. The Devils' options are running out, it seems. I'm starting to think they're either moving Bernier up to another line, or else placing a lot of hope in Tedenby, which is kind of scary. At least we can almost count on a trade.

For one year, under Poni's $1.8 million for a 24 year old former first round pick...I'd take that chance.
