Devils sign F Arron Asham

180 posts in this topic

Lou's comment gives me the feeling he's going to be a fourth line forward and not down in Lowell.

I like the idea of the signing, but I'm not convinced on the player signed. I would have went with Adam Hall or Josef Vasicek for a fourth line forward.

I LOVE this signing. He's a feisty lil' bugger.

I really like how Lou is putting together a solid fourth line. This is a good signing and his feistiness will definitely add something to the fourth line.

Kudos to Voros for sort of predicting this as when he put his lines for this next season he had Asham in on the fourth line.

I wonder if Sutter asked for this one?

Lou is building a mean team... and I like it.

I think he would look real nice on the 3rd Pando-Madden-Asham

This has been the off season of classic "Lou Moves"...small pieces and parts that end up making a huge difference in October.

This is the best way to describe our moves this year. But it should have been June, not October.

I always liked Aaron when he was here as a Habs..He can produce decent offensive numbers, and he does lay some good hits in the game..Good signing, Better than Rass or Dowd on the 4rth line though :)

Also means Vikhuola is not see the big club without trade or injury.

Yep. The writing was on the wall.

Asham's a pain in the ass to play against, and he can be moved to whatever line needs him most. He saw time with Yashin on the top pairing (and again on the 4th line, heh). He's willing to drop the gloves if need be, too.

I kind of feel bad for Rass cause I liked him. If Lou does sign him it will get real interesting...

Also, possible insurance in case everyone's favorite Finn-league-import Viuhkola can't hack it in the NHL.

Few people liked Rass more than I did. I hope he gets signed by a team looking for a character guy like him. Maybe he can sign with the Thrashers... imagine seeing his mug alongside Holik's on the ice. Yikes. :P
