I bet this cuts into Jannsens playing time in a big way.


you're saying this like it's a bad thing?

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

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

Good point...the additions definately show more in the post season than they do in the regular.

Thanks for the correction!

If Rasmussen is indeed not retained (which I don't think he will, especially not now), I could see him getting 10.

Okay so bye bye Rass I guess.. I really like Asham though, hes not bad at scoring and hes a gritty forward.. hes a really good 4th liner, maybe even a 3rd liner.. good sign

not a big fan of this one

asham has his moments of greatness but he takes some stupid penalties. i have no idea why we signed both rupp and janssen to multiyear deals, only so that they will rot on the bench. viuhkola's signing is also a mystery to me.

I'm struggling the same with Viuhkola -- what was the point of signing him now?

I have a funny feeling Lou isn't done...I still feel as though there's a trade a-brewing. We seem to have a great deal of third / fourth liners on this team...maybe a package deal is coming?

Eric Ras sucks. I wish we didn't sign Rupp either. I would rather Asham over the both of them.

Let's see...we potentially have Rupp, Janssen, Viuhkola, Asham, Dowd (unsigned), Rasmussen (unsigned), Pelley, Clarkson....

man, I dont care to be signing rangers, islanders, and former flyers (zubrus), but all these signings do have potential to work out on different levels. asham could turn into a more productive 4th/3rd liner than rass, although I dont approve the spelling of his first name (arron???)
