In Topic: Schneider re-signs with extended multi-year contract

Now they need to lock up Greene.  It'll take a Dan Girardi type deal (6 years, $33 million, $5.5 mil cap hit) to keep him, but I don't think I'd be comfortable going six years (he'd be 38).  5 years, $27 million?

As bad as he looked last year, I'm not ready to throw in the towel on Ryder. 

 

Dude has 5 seasons of scoring 25+ goals.  

His 2011 season was very similar in points to last year, and he followed that season with a 35 goal output.

 

He was pretty snake-bit last year, so I'm willing to give him another chance.  Brunner doesn't have the track record of Ryder, and was signed out of necessity last year.

I can't understand why anyone is still talking about remaining UFA forwards.  If/when Josefson signs, that makes 14 NHL forwards.  If Lou brings Carter back, that's 15.  Not to mention Boucher and Matteau may have a shot to stick with the team in training camp.

 

Give it up.  Other than shipping out Ryder or Brunner, this is the group we have.

Lamoriello pretty much gives his feeling about Gio's performance & role vs. Bernier:

 

"Stephen Gionta plays any role. He's like that sixth player on a basketball team. So it was a no-brainer to bring him back," the GM said. "Steve Bernier certainly did not have a good year.  We brought him back in an entry-level situation to resurrect his career and see how it goes."

I feel bad for lou. if he doesnt make a move, people will criticize him here. if he makes a move, people criticize the contract. if he signs someones that everyone on the board wants, people will complain he paid too much to get him

 

Why feel bad?  Lou's been a ridiculously successful GM for over 25 years with the same team.  He doesn't care what a bunch of jack-offs on a message board think.
