Well, you ain't too bright for writing this after Gionta already signed with the Sabres. How's that for a response.

 

Not to be a dick, but I think that went over your head....

So according to Wikipedia Radim Vrbata signed with the Devils, then the Heat, Panthers and then the Habs.  He's had a hell of a day.

 

Now he plays for the Hip Czechers

According to TG: Lamoriello didn't sound certain that Devils can re-sign Ryan Carter. He said he's still trying, but "we'll see."

The Rangers got worse today. That's a major plus.

I didn't realize Ryan Johansen put up so many points.


Nabokov signs with TB. One more door closes for Marty.

Not really. Gio is clearly the worst of the cbgb line. Bernier didn't produce, but he want the drag that Gio was/is on his linemates. For $600k that signing is acceptable.

How do you figure? Gionta created chances and killed penalties. Vernier couldn't even create a spark with his body let alone his stick

For those asking about Mike Cammalleri and No. 13. Lamoriello said. "We don't have a 13."

I mean, he was on the pk, but I don't know if I'd call it killing penalties.

Also ILWT did a write up on the line where they showed that Carter and Bernier both had better possession numbers away from Gio and that Gio had the worst numbers all around, though Bernier failed to do much of anything point wise with his time on the 2 & 3 line.

Okay if you say so, but you didn't answer the question, what did bernier do last year besides take up space and make the team worse? He was easily the worst player on the team last year. Ever since the boarding call in the finals he's been atrocious.

I never said Bernier played well, just that he was not the worst. The worst forward is definitely Gionta. I'd take Bernier over Gionta without a doubt.

In previous seasons I would say that was true. Bernier looked like an even worse version of Ryder.

Okay I understood that but what are you basing that off of? He couldn't hit, he couldn't kill penalties, he could play on the PP. He had a worse points per game and goals per game than gionta. And he had a +/- twice as bad as gio. In fact it might have been the worst on the team if I had to guess. So how on earth did he, in any way, play better than gio?

The idea that Gionta shouldn't be on the PK isn't supported by very much.

Points aren't everything and Gio shouldn't be on the pk and doesn't get any pp time.

Here's the ILWT article I mentioned: http://www.inlouwetrust.com/2014/6/29/5850108/cbgb-line-who-should-be-kept

Yeah I'm not going to read an article from someone else when I'm asking you a simple question. Okay points aren't everything, but they're something. Be that as it may, if points aren't worth anything to you, what exactly did bernier do that was beneficial to the team? Did he get in important fights to spark the team? Did he lay the lumber in a big spot to get the team going? Did he always created havoc in front of the net that led to goals? Did he cause turnovers that lead to goals? Did he get in on the forecheck every shift to create a lot of possession time? Or maybe backcheck hard every play to help out the d? Any of these things that you want from a forth liner? Because I watched every game just like everyone else on this thread and I didn't see any of that. Bernier was the biggest waste of space on this team and you've come up with zero valid points to argue that.
