A former DeBo guy and another first round "bust". Hoping he can be Bernier 2.0 maybe?  Can't imagine he got too much money.

Why not?

Big guy, probably low cap hit.  If he manages to push Gionta out of the lineup I'll be happy.

I remember when he was drawing Jagr comparisons...  Maybe the NJD can resurect him.

I really like Olesz - even if he didn't get along with DeBoer, he had his best success under him.  He's certainly a better bet than Mattias Tedenby.

I like Olesz as a depth move.

Now this is a move I fully approve of. Bottom six winger with low risk. Why the heck not?

Goldionice also notes that Bernier and DeBoer didn't mesh in Florida but seem to get along fine now.

Olesz can actually play hockey, hes no slouch. Much better than Tedenby and he would do just fine on the third line. His contract killed him not his play.
