Young & McIntyre signed

8 posts in this topic

Young signed for $1,610,000 over 3 years

McIntyre signed for $1,195,000 over 2 years

I also read an article about Fayne a few weeks ago and he said he hasn't heard anything from the Devils. I wouldn't expect more than one of Fayne, Delahey and T.J. Miller to be signed.

mcintyre is nice AHL depth - he should provide 35-40 points.

young, i've heard bad things about his skating - he may start in trenton. if the defense in lowell is davison, urbom, eckford, magnan, one of corrente or taormina - he may be left out, depending on what happens.

it also lists JS Berube as someone we've signed. Berube seems a real long shot to make the NHL, and I'm not sure what he'll provide at the AHL level.

Lowell is shaping up like this:

Vasuynov-Swift-Palmieri

Davis (could be Tedenby)-Henrique-Perkovich

Berube-McIntyre-X

Robitaille-X-X

Taormina-Urbom

Eckford-Davison

Young-?

Frazee

?

assuming McKenna, Corrente, and Halischuk all make the big club. They'll hopefully add an AHL veteran or two to that mix.

Berube actually had a pretty nice season, considering he's an enforcer.

5th on the team in points and had 2 shorthanded goals so he was penalty killing too.

Berube doesn't have enforcer numbers though - or at least I thought he didn't, until I found out he was 9th in the league in penalty minutes. It is quite shocking that PIMs have gone way down in the QMJHL - 300 PIMs in a season was not uncommon a few years ago.

Should be interesting to see how McIntyre develops, he had some descent college numbers and it'll be interesting to see what a year in Albany(?) will do for his development.

McIntyre looked like he had a decent base of skill during the Devils rookie camp last summer. I'd like to see how well he develops over the course of the next couple of seasons.
