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

Players are kids... they mature quickly...

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

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.

Carter deserves more $ if he is playing center and wing.

his contract was for 3.4m per or something like that.  he was a salary dump by florida for them to take brian campbell's contract.  he's an NHL quality player, just paid too much to be up in the NHL for a team like chicago

I like this move, still young, has nice size, almost a point-per-game in the AHL - I think he can be a solid bottom 6 role player or at the very least a better call up option than the likes of Sestito.

I'd think Olesz beats out Tedenby for that 3rd line spot?

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.

 

This + his nickname is Rusty.

Given Clowe's salary, he will join Kovy, Elias, Zajac, Loktionov and Henrique as our top 6. So Olesz will play on our third line with Zubrus and Josefsen (penciled in). This is a good move IMO.

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice is also great, and would suffice.

No risk deal. Its one way though, so hes clearly replacing Poni at least in terms of roster spot

 

One-year, one-way contract for Olesz for $1 million total -- $700,000 base salary plus $300,000 in games played bonuses. - TG

Really just think he's an extra for us. If Ryder signs here i Don't see how he could crack the top 9 and the 4th seems set with carter,Bernier, Gionta, Josefson.
